Last update: May 13, 2021

  • STARTED - This is the default status for new incidents created.
  • MITIGATED - The incident is ongoing but customers are no longer impacted, usually thanks to temporary or stop-gap efforts.
  • RESOLVED - The incident is resolved and a long-term resolution has been implemented with little to no risk or short-term resurgence.

Updating incident status in Slack is easy with the following commands:

  • /rootly mitigate - This will mark an incident as mitigated.
  • /rootly resolve - This will mark an incident as resolved.
