The plugin for the alert list in grafana version 9.5.2 does not have the heart-style feature like version grafana 6.2.0. I would like to know how to revert to installing the old plugin and if it’s possible to remove the “view alert rule” from the new plugin.
When upgrading from Grafana 6.2.0 to Grafana 9.5.2, some changes occurred in the Alert list plugin. Previously, the plugin had a heart-style icon, which is now missing in the newer version. Additionally, a clickable link labeled ‘view alert list’ has appeared, but it hides the titles of the alerts. This is causing an issue as we have business dashboards with numerous alerts, and we need to see all the alert titles directly from these dashboards.
To address this problem and ensure that we can view all the alert details directly on our business dashboards, we want to find a way to hide the ‘view alert list’ link and display the alert titles properly.
here is an example we got on grafana 9.5.2 :
this is about the old version of grafana 6.2.0 which is more clear then the new one :
I talked to the Alerting team, and they will review your feedback on how the alert title gets truncated when the size of the alert list panel is small. As for the green heart icon, I am not so sure that adding it back to current version of Grafana would be considered. At the end of the day, the alerts in pending, and in firing status are the ones you should worry about.
In any case, I created this issue in our repository on your behalf
Is it possible to install a specific version of that plugin using the Grafana CLI? No, the alert list is a core plugin.
Also do you know please how much time grafana support will take to add the hidden feature of the ‘view alert rule’ ? I’d recommend to subscribe to the issue and give a chance to the Alerting team to review your feedback.
If it’s possible, could you please provide the command to install the AlertList plugin with a specific version using its ID? native plugin come as core packages with grafana so it is not expected nor recommended to perform any manual changes as things might stop working.
