Has anyone ever been able to use Amazon SES as an SMTP server and pass AWS generated SMTP credentials into the grafana config.ini?
I’ve tried it so many different ways but it just isn’t working for me. I thought it could take a generic SMTP server and with user/pass just start sending alert notifications on a configured alert channel.
Provisioned channel config:
notifiers: - name: email-channel-1 type: email uid: emailnotifier1 org_id: 1 is_default: true send_reminder: false disable_resolve_message: false # See `Supported Settings` section for settings supported for each # alert notification type. settings: uploadImage: true singleEmail: true addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com
[smtp] # If the password contains # or ; you have to wrap it with trippel quotes. Ex “”"#password;""" enabled = true host = email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com:465 # password do not contain semicolon or hash symbol # does it expect them base64 encoded or something? user = <got from AWS SMTP username> password = <got from AWS SMTP password> ;skip_verify = true from_address = firstname.lastname@example.org from_name = Grafana
