Removal of API v1

The Alertmanager v1 API has been deprecated since January 2019 with the release of Alertmanager v0.16.0. With the release of version 0.27.0 it is now removed.
A successful HTTP request to any of the v1 endpoints will log and return a deprecation message while responding with a status code of 410.
Please ensure you switch to the v2 equivalent endpoint in your integrations before upgrading.

Alertmanager support for all UTF-8 characters in matchers and label names

Starting with Alertmanager v0.27.0, we have a new parser for matchers that has a number of backwards incompatible changes. While most matchers will be forward-compatible, some will not. Alertmanager is operating a transition period where it supports both UTF-8 and classic matchers, so it's entirely safe to upgrade without any additional configuration. With that said, we recommend the following:

  • If this is a new Alertmanager installation, we recommend enabling UTF-8 strict mode before creating an Alertmanager configuration file. You can enable strict mode with alertmanager --config.file=config.yml --enable-feature="utf8-strict-mode".

  • If this is an existing Alertmanager installation, we recommend running the Alertmanager in the default mode called fallback mode before enabling UTF-8 strict mode. In this mode, Alertmanager will log a warning if you need to make any changes to your configuration file before UTF-8 strict mode can be enabled. Alertmanager will make UTF-8 strict mode the default in the next two versions, so it's important to transition as soon as possible.

Irrespective of whether an Alertmanager installation is a new or existing installation, you can also use amtool to validate that an Alertmanager configuration file is compatible with UTF-8 strict mode before enabling it in Alertmanager server by running amtool check-config config.yml and inspecting the log messages.

Should you encounter any problems, you can run the Alertmanager with just the classic parser enabled by running alertmanager --config.file=config.yml --enable-feature="classic-mode". If so, please submit a bug report via GitHub issues.
