Currently, you can attach PagerDuty Incidents, Opsgenie Alerts, GitHub Pull Requests, Sentry tickets and Zendesk tickets to an incident.

Attachments allows you to connect something from another system into

To attach something, you simply need to:

  1. Make sure you're connected to the provider (e.g. GitHub) on the integration settings page

  2. Paste a link into an incident channel, like below

You can view attachments in Slack (via /incident attachments) and in the Web UI:

Once it's attached, we'll help you out wherever we can.

For example, if it's a GitHub PR, we'll comment on the PR (if it's in a private repo) with a connection back to the incident, so it's easy to find in the future:

Additionally, when a Pull Request gets closed or merged, we'll let you know in the channel:

To start using the feature, set up your integration and paste a link into an incident channel. We'll do the rest!
