What Happens After the Alert?Assign, track, and group alerts through incident management.
Incidents, Where Alerts Get Resolved
When an alert comes into Squid Alerts, it typically creates an associated incident. Incidents are what your teams actually work on and provide the following capabilities:
- Incidents can be assigned to teams and team members
- They provide status for improved tracking - New, Acknowledged, Active, Resolved, and Closed
- Incidents can have different priorities which are used for reporting and advanced escalation chain configurations
- Details such as the title or the contents of an incident can be modified
- The incident body uses markdown formatting so that you can add styles to the contents of the incident
- Incidents can have multiple alerts associated with them
We designed the incident screen to give you all the information you need in a single place.
- Quickly check the incident status and who's working on it.
- See not only which user is assigned, but the team's primary and secondary on-call resources so you know who to reach out to.
- Get details on any associated alerts with a simple click.
- We keep detailed history so you know who is changing what.
- View the escalations on the incident to know which team members were contacted, when, and how.
