Bringing on-call and incident information into Compass

Oct 18, 2022

Hey Community, our team is super excited to share that Compass now has Opsgenie & PagerDuty apps AND there’s a new kid on the block in the Activity Feed - Incident Events! Oh and while we were at it, we tossed in a bonus feature: each unique event source will now be given its own row on the activity feed so you know where the events are coming from :tada: 

On-call information

The Opsgenie and PagerDuty apps bring your on-call schedules directly into the component detail view so you can find the right people at the right time when troubleshooting or navigating an active incident. Simply drop a link to your Opsgenie schedule or PagerDuty service into the on-call section of your component.

Compass can now ingest and plot incidents in the activity feed alongside deployments, and other events, for your components and their dependencies. First install/configure either integration and then follow the documentation (Opsgenie, PagerDuty) to get incident events flowing into compass. You can also learn more about sending events, including incidents, to Compass using our REST API.

Quick callout: Our Opsgenie integration is an early version that we wanted to get in your hands while we continue to improve upon it. You may encounter some rough edges getting incident info flowing in, check the docs for setup info and callouts.

Incident metrics

After incident events start flowing in, the new apps also give you key metrics like “Incident Count” and “Mean Time to Resolution" so you can better understand the health of your components. Whenever an incident is opened or closed these metrics will be automatically calculated for you; there is no configuration required. And great news, you can also use these metrics with scorecards to track these indicators across collections of components.

Checkout the apps today

Compass provides deeper visibility into how incidents impact all software components in your distributed architecture while giving you a DevOps health platform to prevent future incidents. Checkout the Opsgenie and PagerDuty apps today by navigating to the “Apps” menu in Compass, and let us know what you think using the “Give feedback” button.

Happy Compassing!
