"Events" menu item missing from influxdb cloud

My apologies for what is probably a really dumb question.

I am new to influxdb and have signed up to a free tier cloud account. I am starting to look at alerting, however have no menu item visable (on the left). Picture attached.

Hi @simonsmart9,
With InfluxDB Cloud serverless we have stripped back a lot of these features to focus on the overall database performance. I would highly suggest looking into:

  • Grafana Clouds Alerts
  • Node-Red / Flow Forge
  • quix.io

You can also look at creating your own with one of the cloud providers: https://thenewstack.io/alerting-with-grafana-and-influxdb-cloud-serverless/
