Grafana integration for alerts
Problem to solve
Out-of-the-box for Grafana to enable users to quickly route alerts to GitLab and manage them in the GitLab UI. Grafana does not allow users to customize the payload of Grafana alerts so users would not be able to user GitLab to manage Grafana alerts without a third-party intermediary tool. We are priortizing Grafana as one of the first integrations for Alert management because:
- It is widely used in market
- It is used by our internal teams - we can dogfood
- It is open source
This work drives the direction of the Alert Management category.
Integrate with Grafana so that users can send Grafana alerts to GitLab and mange them in the GitLab UI in just a few clicks.
