Notify next on-call user Ignores Schedule Overrides

In Opsgenie, we had an instance where an escalation policy notifies the current and next on-call user, but the team has noticed that the alert will always default to the next on-call user in the original schedule and if the original schedule has been overridden so that the next on-call user is different, the alert will go to the next on-call user in the original schedule.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior, and is there anything I can do to make sure it doesn't happen again?

I've just confirmed with Atlassian support that this is a known issue.

Hi @Sam ,

Glad you were able to connect with someone else on our team. We'll be sure to reach out if there's an update on this issue in the future.

As for a workaround - since the override only respects the current on-call rule - you could clone the schedule, and change the escalation rule from notify next user in schedule A >> notify on-call user in schedule B (or the cloned schedule).

For example:

sched comm 1.jpg

Then offset this new schedule's rotation by one user to essentially account for the "next" on-call user:

sched comm 2.jpg


And finally adjust the escalation rule from notifying the next on-call user in Schedule A >> notify on-call user in Schedule B. Final configuration might look something like this:

sched comm 3.jpg


Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions or issues with this configuration.
