Dashboards Alerting doesn't support remote cross-search clusters

Hello. I have a multi-cluster design, where the clusters have cross-search configurations to search each other.
When trying to follow the Create Monitor dialog in the Alerting feature of Opensearch Dashboards, I’m finding it’s not possible to enter any of the remote Index Patterns in the Index field (under Data Source).

For example, local-index-family-* seems to work, but…
os4:another-index-family-* does not.
(Even though os4:another-index-family-* is a working Index Pattern and is usable under the Discover feature.).

Am I doing this wrong, or is Alerting not supported for cross-search clusters?

Moved to the Alerting category

Hey @mhoydis,

Alerting currently does not support cross-cluster search. This enhancement is being tracked in this GitHub issue.
