We launched the first version of the Incident investigation view in April of 2020 for Bitbucket Pipelines. Shortly after that, we added the ability to investigate deployment-related incidents in Opsgenie from other tools with the creation of our Deployment API.
Today, we're proud to take that flexible approach one step further with the launch of Incident Investigation for GitLab. Now you can investigate your GitLab CI/CD deployments using Opsgenie’s Incident Investigation view, empowering your responders to investigate, identify root cause, and resolve incidents faster.
Let’s walk through how to set it up.
Note: This integration requires you to have GitLab Ultimate because it utilizes group-level web-hooks.
To begin investigating your GitLab CI/CD deployments, connect your GitLab and Opsgenie accounts by selecting the 'Add Connection' button in the GitLab integrations page under global settings.
When you authenticate GitLab you will be able to see the top-level groups from your account that you can connect to your Opssgenie account.
Back in Opsgenie on the Integrations page, all connected groups are listed. Admins can remove GitLab groups connected to Opsgenie, however, new groups can only be added by the GitLab account owner of the groups.
Once the GitLab group is connected to Opsgenie, it’s time to map the GitLab project under the connected GitLab Groups to Opsgenie services.
Next, it’s time to add mappings to each service. You need to manually select each project that you want to map to your services in Opsgenie.
The screenshot below shows that all connected projects listed on the Service settings page.
Now here we are inside the Incident Investigation view. We can see the deployment history for the services in question, and we can click in to get more detail on each deployment and commit. Note that we cannot currently see file changes in this view, but we hope to add that functionality to a future version.
Once the potential cause of an incident has been identified, it is added automatically to the incidents details screen, as shown below.
If you’re using GitLab and Opsgenie together we would love to hear your feedback on the first version of this new connection. Please leave a comment below!
