While many vendors have served their purpose, they might not encompass the full spectrum of modern ITSM needs. Migrating to Jira Service Management can offer a more integrated approach, bringing together incident management, communication channels, and even software development in one unified platform.

Opsgenie and Jira Service Management as ITSM heroes

Incidents are an unavoidable part of IT operations, but how they are managed can make a significant difference. Combining the capabilities of Opsgenie and Jira Service Management offers a powerful approach to incident management that spans detection, response, and recovery.

Opsgenie and Jira Service Management integrate seamlessly to create a unified incident management ecosystem. This integration facilitates:

  • Jira Service Management to Opsgenie:
    • When a new issue is created in Jira Service Management, Opsgenie generates a corresponding alert, capturing vital incident details.
    • Any comments added to an issue in Jira Service Management are mirrored as notes in the Opsgenie alert.
    • When an issue is marked as closed and resolved in Jira Service Management, the related Opsgenie alert is also closed.
  • Opsgenie to Jira Service Management:
    • With the "Send Alert Updates Back to Jira Service Management" feature enabled, Opsgenie actions trigger corresponding actions within Jira Service Management for alerts originating from the integration.
    • Similarly, when "Create Jira Service Management Issues for Opsgenie Alerts" is enabled, Opsgenie actions trigger actions within Jira Service Management for alerts from sources other than the integration.

  • Collecting incidents and requests from different channels (like a portal, email, chat, or REST API).
  • Incorporating multiple monitoring sources, including alerts, events, heartbeat monitoring, and REST API. 
  • For incidents requiring further development work, Jira Service Management ensures a seamless transition of Bugs and Features to Jira Software.
  • Centralizing knowledge (runbooks, known errors, workarounds, and FAQs are consolidated within Confluence, Jira's collaborative platform).
