2 alerts are created automatically when creating an Incident


Does anybody know if it's possible to avoid new automatic alert creation when an incident is created from an alert. Is mandatory to get 2 new alerts or are we missing something? Seems to be quite redundant

The process is as follows:

  1. An email is sent to the account we have setup to receive alerts
  2. The alert is automatically created and communicated to the team
  3. Someone in the team "acknowledged" the alert
  4. The user/operator creates an incident from the alert
  5. 2 new alerts are automatically created with the incident information

Hi @Pedro Parellada ,

That's the current workflow with Opsgenie incidents.

Say for example an incident is created automatically through an incident rule, and the incident rule is tied to a service:



The service adds multiple responders to the incident at creation:inc2.jpg


The alert that initially created the incident would become an Associated alert - and doesn't notify anyone.

The incident then creates a Responder alert for each responder added by the service, and does notify each responder:inc3.jpg


The idea behind this workflow is that each responder might have a different configuration in which they need to be notified when an incident triggers; each team could have different routing rules or escalations that manage incidents vs. alerts, each user might have different notifications rules for incidents vs. alerts, etc.

Hope that helps make sense of why two (or more) alerts are created for an incident. And unfortunately at this time there isn't a way to disable this workflow.

Thks for your answer Nick. Regards!
