New severity level options
We’ve added two new options for severity levels in Jira Ops.
Now, when you select a severity level you’ll see five different options to chose from.
1 - Critical
2 - High
3 - Moderate
4 - Low
5 - Informational
The change comes from user feedback. We want to give you options to manage an incident process that works for you. Previously only three severity levels were available, but you can certainly continue to use fewer levels if you prefer.
We’ve put a lot of thought into severity levels and how we use them at Atlassian. You can check out our incident handbook to learn exactly how we manage sev levels for major incidents.
Coming soon: Raise incidents directly from Slack
We’ve gotten a lot of feedback from users that being able to raise incidents directly from Slack would be helpful.
We definitely agree, and we wanted to let you know that this is something we’re currently exploring. If you have suggestions on how this should work or what you’d like this feature to include, send us a note and we’ll have a chat.
See you in 2019!
With the holidays coming up, we know a lot of folks are taking time off. So are we! We’re going to take a holiday break from these weekly updates for the next two weeks. We hope you enjoy a relaxing, incident-free holiday and a happy new year. If you’re on call, Godspeed.
