    Do incidents that are triggered in PagerDuty create a new Issue in Sentry?

    No, the integration only sends information from Sentry to PagerDuty. This is not a 2-way integration.

    If an incident is resolved in PagerDuty, is the issue resolved in Sentry, or vice versa?

    No, the current integration only sends the trigger information from Sentry to PagerDuty.

    Can I setup multiple Sentry Projects be tied to the same PagerDuty service?

    Yes! When you are creating the new Project in Sentry, simply use the same Integration Key as the PagerDuty service where you wish to have the alerts trigger.

    If you are having trouble completing the installation, please contact our support.
