PagerDuty + Freshservice Integration Benefits

  • Agents will get alerts from their incidents in PagerDuty to their Freshservice account

  • Updates made to the ticket in Freshservice also get sent to the corresponding PagerDuty incidents

How it Works

Freshservice to PagerDuty

  • When a new ticket is created in Freshservice, an event is triggered via workflow automator to the connected service in PagerDuty. An event from Freshservice will trigger a new incident on the corresponding PagerDuty service.

  • When a note(both public and private) is added to the ticket in Freshservice, a note is added to the associated incident in PagerDuty.

  • When the ticket is resolved in Freshservice, the associated incident in PagerDuty is resolved.

  • When the ticket is Closed/Deleted/Marked As Spam, the associated incident in PagerDuty is resolved.

PagerDuty to Freshservice

  • When an incident is triggered in the PagerDuty, a new ticket is created in Freshservice.

  • When an incident is acknowledged, the associated ticket is assigned to the same agent if available in Freshservice. Else a note is added.

  • When an incident is unacknowledged, the associated ticket in Freshservice is unassigned if it was already assigned.

  • When an incident is Escalated or Delegated, a note is added to the associated ticket in Freshservice.

  • When an incident is resolved, the associated ticket is resolved in Freshservice


Requirements

  • PagerDuty integrations require an Admin base role for account authorization. If you do not have this role, please reach out to an Admin or Account Admin within your organization to configure the integration.
