Create more meaningful incidents from alerts and perform more powerful automations based on the alert fields associated to an incident. Use the alert payload fields associated to an incident in ticket workflow automator to:

  • Capture alert fields as incident custom fields
  • Send emails with alert related information
  • Perform orchestration and further automations by using alert payload fields and much more
Note: Only the primary alert's fields are availble in the workflow automator i.e the alert which created the incident. Alert fields for any subsequent alerts added to the incident will not be available in workflow automator.

Click here to understand how to configure a workflow automator. Workspace admins can view the list of global and local workflows applicable to their workspace. 

Order of Execution: The global workflows execute first, followed by the workspace-level workflows, to allow for the workspace-level workflows to take precedence over the global workflow. 

For example, A global workflow can be configured to route tickets to the right workspace based on the subject/description.

Add alert fields to condition node

Apply conditions based on alert fields to your workflows by accessing the Primary Alert Fields in the condition node

Use alert fields in action node

Enrich your emails and incidents with alert information by using alert field placeholders in the action node

Scenario: Assigning alert fields as incident custom field

Let's take an example where you want to assign alert information that is part of additional information field as an incident custom field.

  1. Create a custom field called "Company" to capture the company name from the alert payload.
  2. Create an alert rule to create an incident out of an alert.
  3. Create a ticket workflow automator. 
  4. Add an event node setting the event as "Incident is raised" 
  5. Insert a condition node checking if alerts are the source of the ticket 
Note: In order to access alert additional information fields use JSON Parser node

      6. Insert JSON parser node and set the source as {{ticket.primary_alert.additional_info}}.   


      7. Paste the a sample additional information JSON in the JSON block. Click on generate output to see the parsed output on the right hand side. Add an appropriate label in the label field at the bottom.

     8. You can now access the additional info fields in the subsequent nodes. Add an action block to set the custom field 'Company' equal to the appropriate additional info payload value. Select 'Set Company name as'

    9. Click on "P2 Additional info" to access the output generated by the JSON parser node and select the appropriate value
