We would like to connect Grafana alerting engine to a custom time-series datasource.
it lists only a few supported engines.
We also see PRs for adding other engines, e.g. elasticsearch: https://github.com/grafana/grafana/pull/5948/files
What is the suggested way of installing a custom engine with an existing Grafana distribution? We would like to avoid making our own packaging.
Currently we are building an Grafana App with a custom datasource pointing our engine. Ideally both alerting support can be bundled together?
