Create Incidents

New to using Transposit? Learn how to get started.

An incident coordinates team members across work channels.

Each incident has a timeline of posts listing comments from users and updates to the state of the incident. Posts can be generated by scripts, service integrations, and direct user submissions.

Creating a new incident is the starting point when you are using Transposit as an incident responder.

Incidents can be created in three different ways.

  • Automatically via incoming alerts, as described in Alerts and Webhooks in combination with Alert Rules.
  • By an incident responder using Transposit Slack commands, as described in Transposit Slack Commands.
  • By an incident responder clicking Create Incident in the top right of Transposit to begin creating your incident manually outside Slack.

Watch this quick screencast for an overview of the ways in which incidents can be created in Transposit.
