Display hostname in alert emails

mthomasmthomas ContributorCurrent User Role Novice
Has anyone got email alerts to display the actual hostname - the name of the host/node that has triggered the alert.

So far I have tried labels and altering the alert name/description, but still not able to see the hostname within an alert email.

    It very strange from my point of view, but grafana don't support such simple thing right now.
    BUT workaround exists!
    you can add instance name to the legend.
    1. Open dashboard
    2. Click on the title of needed graph with alert
    3. Select “Edit”
    4. Choose the "Metrics" tab
    5. add "" string inside "Legend format" field.
