Backfill and Import Past Incidents

πŸ«— Backfill and Import Past Incidents

Inevitably there will be incidents captured outside of Rootly, for example, an outage that lasted a few minutes that was automatically resolved due to self-healing that was in place.

However, it is still important to track it for posterity. We are launching the ability to Backfill and Import past incidents.

  • Does not trigger workflows that normally would when incident is created
  • Reflected appropriately in metrics with modifiable timestamps for accuracy
  • Enable or disable ability to Backfill via Configuration > Form Fields
  • Supported via API
