Linear Integration

Linear Integration

🎟️ Linear Integration

It's no secret that Rootly has a powerful integration with Linear and is leveraged by customers already.

Today, we are formally launching in partnership with Linear on their integrations marketplace.

Customers will be able to automatically create and track tickets such as incident action items in Linear and ensure they bi-directionally sync. This can all be done from within Slack or Web.

  • Create a Linear issue when a new incident is created with relevant metadata
  • Create a Linear sub-issue when a new action item is created
  • Update an issue ticket to Done when an incident is resolved


  • Full customization and configuration via Workflows
  • Automate routing different Linear tickets to different boards depending on incident severity, type, team, or any other condition
  • Automatically sync incident severity with Linear priorities
  • Leverage incident variables to populate to customize ticket description, title, etc.
