RigD Delivers Deeper PagerDuty Integration to Improve Incident Lifecycle Management

PagerDuty Establishes RigD as Verified Partner


RigD for PagerDuty lets you automate many important PagerDuty activities right through Slack. Our Slack bot for PagerDuty saves Ops teams a lot of time.


We’ve been working closely with PagerDuty and I’m happy to share that PagerDuty recognizes the value we bring to customers and has added RigD as a Verified Partner.  We use the latest PagerDuty APIs and we are excited to be able to quickly add features that provide the value needed for Digital Operations.











Here are four major benefits RigD gives PagerDuty users:

  • RigD helps drive efficiency into the workflow from the identification point on…
  • RigD accelerates data collection for incident diagnosing issues by providing the mechanisms to gather the data right from within Slack.
  • RigD brings incident data and the relevant people into Slack to facilitate faster root cause identification.
  • RigD captures and learns from all of the troubleshooting interactions to help teams develop automation to drive faster MTTR for future issues.


Our new release

Being an agile SaaS service we are always adding features, but at some point we have enough new capabilities to declare a major milestone.  We are also pleased to announce that we recently released deeper PagerDuty integration in our RigD workbot.  Building upon our conversations with PagerDuty customers at Summit, we added many new activities that round out augmenting work in the incident lifecycle.   Adding activities around technical setup, assess, respond and learn make DevOps, IT Operations, Support Engineering, Incident Coordinators and Incident Commanders much more efficient in their work buy giving them increased control over the PagerDuty operations all within Slack where the teams are collaborating to acknowledge, identify and remediate the business impacting issues.


With the new release, we have the following capabilities, broken out by the PagerDuty Incident Lifecycle

    Gents, please let me know if Rigd can help me CREATE a pagerduty incident with a specific team, e.g., “rigd new pagerduty incident TeamX” that would then kick off the pager process for the oncall for TeamX
