  • Trigger and resolve incidents from your stream by mentioning @pagerduty in your post
  • See incidents and escalations in your stream as they occur
  • Get a daily reminder of who’s on-call

Troubleshooting

Automatically resolve a PagerDuty service

To resolve a PagerDuty service automatically when a monitor recovers, include the PagerDuty notification in the {{#is_recovery}} context of your Say what’s happening section of your monitor as follows:

{{#is_recovery}}

    This notification will only occur if the monitor resolves.
    If  @pagerduty-trigger was triggered for the alert, it'll be resolved as well

{{/is_recovery}}

Send a notification to a specific PagerDuty service

To send a message or notification to a specific PagerDuty service when multiple services are integrated, use @pagerduty-[serviceName] in your monitor message. If you start typing it in your monitor Say what’s happening section, you should see it autocomplete.

Alert description truncated

Datadog has an upper limit on your monitor notification lengths sent to PagerDuty. The limit is at 1024 characters.
