Verify data is not null in dashboards


I’m looking for a way of iterating through all my dashboards, and verifying that there’s data in them all (programmatically). I was looking into Alerts for this, thinking I could simply set alert on NoData, but it seems there’s no way to only alert if there’s no data. Am I missing something?

Thanks, Tom

If you fetch all the alerts via the API then you can check the evalData -> noData field:

    "id": 9,
    "dashboardId": 145,
    "panelId": 2,
    "name": "Metrics Ingestion alert",
    "message": "Metric Ingestion rate has dropped",
    "state": "no_data",
    "newStateDate": "2017-11-27T02:16:02-05:00",
    "evalDate": "0001-01-01T00:00:00Z",
    "evalData": {
      "noData": true
    "executionError": "",
    "dashboardUri": "db\/myalerts"
