Reopening Incidents

πŸ₯‘ Reopening Incidents

We've all been there. Sometimes we get ahead of ourselves and close an incident too early before it's been resolved.

Today, we are excited to introduce the ability to reopen incidents and continue right where you left off without missing a beat.


  • Accessible in Slack via /incident status or /rootly status commands and in the Web UI (see above screenshot)
  • Metrics are updated accordingly to reflect the reopened incident to ensure accuracy
  • As always, you can go back and retroactively edit the state time of incident down to the minute
  • Ability to swap back and forth between all incident states (Started, Mitigated, and Resolved)
