Troubleshooting

How do I automatically resolve a PagerDuty service when a monitor recovers?

You must 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}}

How do I send a message/notification to a specific Pager Duty service when multiple 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.
