Auto map any user from PagerDuty and Jira to Rootly incidents with new user lookup

📲 Auto map any user from PagerDuty and Jira to Rootly incidents with new user lookup

Time to assembly (referring to how long it takes to get the right people together to solve a problem) is crucial in the early stages of incidents. Rootly can already create incidents for you from alerts in PagerDuty, Jira, and more, so you can move from detection to mitigation as quickly as possible. Now, we’ve removed another manual step by introducing the ability to map users in Jira and PagerDuty to their corresponding Slack account. This means that when an incident is automatically created from an alert in these tools, the reporter will be added to the incident Slack channel automatically as well. You can also specify if you’d like them assigned to a particular role, like Incident Commander.

This feature works by using a new User Lookup liquid variable: slack_id which you can use to configure workflows to auto-invite Jira Reporters and PagerDuty Agents. This can be set up using Custom Fields Mapping within the Workflow builder. Here’s a demo of how it works:
