Provisioning contact points

I am using Grafana 8.2.4 and want to switch to Grafana 8 alerts. Opting in as described in the docs worked fine.
However, provisioning notification channels as described here does not work any more and a “grafana-default-email” contact point is created instead.
Is there a possibility to provision contact points in a similar way?


I need the same things, some news about this?


I met the same issue, the notifiers.yml is mounted in /etc/grafana/provisioning/notifiers/ directory, but the contact points didn’t load it in Grafana Ui interface. Is this a bug?


Same problem here … :frowning:

I also tried to update to version 8.3.5 and I’m facing the same issue.

hello, same issue here, any update on this?

Has there been any updates in this space yet. Having the same issue here.

Is there any update on this?

When upgrading from Grafana 7 to 8 or 9 its not keeping the notification channel and the provisioning documentation is still outdated.
Also my alerts were not migrated, they are just gone.

Found this now which seems to work as expected:

Will post in the other other thread in case I am seeing issues with this new API.
