OK annotations on panel after nodata state


We’ve recently made the jump from Grafana 8 to 9 which means “Keep Last State” option is now gone, this was useful as we have an alert rule setup which may return no data for the entire window and go into NoData State, however once data arrives, the state changes to OK and an annotation is written to the panel.

The data passing through is very unpredictable so it is switching between NoData(OK) and OK quite often:

We have set NoData State to OK, I cannot see how else I can avoid the OK annotation.
