The PagerDuty Slack integration introduces a seamless workflow and enables customers to:

  • See and act upon PagerDuty incidents and updates within Slack with no switching between platforms, creating a smooth incident management workflow.
  • Receive sufficient incident information for ITOps and DevOps teams to acknowledge or resolve incidents directly in Slack.
  • Keep teams updated on the status of incidents, while minimizing alert noise within the Slack channel or with workflows to an external ITSM solution.
  • Generate a rich incident history for post-mortems and learning.

“We use the integration as a quick way of indicating alert activity in PagerDuty to internal teams who are present in Slack,” said Simon Fiddaman, network operations center (NOC) manager, eBay Classifieds Group.

“With chat tools and chatbots being adopted by ITOps and DevOps teams to better manage day-to-day operations, we are pleased to introduce the new PagerDuty and Slack integration,” said Tim Armandpour, senior vice president of product development, PagerDuty. “Better collaboration means faster incident resolution and faster incident resolution means avoiding business-disrupting events. The PagerDuty and Slack integration is another way to increase operational agility and IT efficiency.”
