We have exactly the same problem, but with Google Chat. Before the upgrade, the alerts were nicely formatted. Now they look like your Grafana 9 screenshot, where all properties are just bundled together.
Hoping for help or a fix.

So a solution for this will be a downgrade, the main issue it’s on the v8.x.x were found security breaches and it is recommended to update to it latest version. Hope we get a hotfix soon. I’ve also reded the release notes for the newest version 9.0.2 but there is no mention to this behavior

Info regarding the sec breaches.

I created a response to another post yesterday on this topic, it has steps to help you format the labels in the alert
