Sometimes, you just want to practice with incident.io without the whole company knowing, and without messing up your lovely incident library with fake data 😅
Luckily, we support test incidents for exactly this use case!
🤔 What is a test incident?
Test incidents are almost exactly the same as normal incidents: you can set summaries, leads, escalate to others, create workflows, and receive nudges.
The only differences are:
We won’t announce it in the
We won’t include it in your incident library, or calculate it as part of Insights
We'll make it clear in the incident homepage that this is a test incident
⛔️ Our Statuspage integration is disabled in a test incident. This is a safety measure to avoid people updating public Statuspages when you're just trying the tool out.
🧪 Creating a test incident
/incident test from any Slack channel to start a test incident 👇🏼
We'll give you visual cues that an incident is a test incident, and allow you to turn it into a real incident if you made a mistake!
