I am not aware of a historical view into this information via the Ambari UI but you can certainly grab this information via the backing Ambari database. Using the default installation you can access it as follows from the Ambari server node:
psql ambari ambari [default pw is bigdata]
select service_name, component_name, alert_state from alert_history where service_name='KAFKA' limit 5;
Thanks Brandon. I used the above approach to retrieve the history of alerts for a specific type.
Adding a small trick for anyone using the above approach. The table "Alert_History" has the Alert Timestamp column in BigInt. For readability, use the PSQL Cast functionality. In my example, I am using the SQL to identify when Ambari triggers the DataNode WebUI alerts across all DataNodes:
Select TO_CHAR(TO_TIMESTAMP(Alert_Timestamp / 1000), 'MM/DD/YYYY HH24:MI:SS') From Alert_History Where Alert_Label Like '%DataNode%UI%' And Alert_State ='CRITICAL' Order By 1 ASC;
