Keep It Private (Incidents)

🀫 Shhh, Keep It Private (Incidents)

We are excited to release the ability to create incidents as Private.

Common use cases are for security or other sensitive incidents that you may not want broadcast to the entire company.

Whenever a Private incident is triggered, we create a private channel, silence notifications, and hide it in the Web Dashboard.

We give you a powerful suite of features to configure and control access. We also ensure Private and Public incidents can co-exist seamlessly.

  • Create Private incidents from Web or Slack
  • On a per incident basis, choose if you want to create incident as Private
  • Only Rootly admins can see or access on Web Dashboard
  • Spins up private incident channel on Slack
  • Notifications to your global #incidents channel are muted
  • Any Private incidents are tagged with πŸ”’ Private
