Opsgenie Android app leaving Do Not Disturb on constantly?


Since installing the Opsgenie app (and granting the permission to override Do Not Disturb, when prompted), I'm finding my phone is constantly in DND mode - overriding my normal schedule. 

A colleague sees the same on their phone, but other colleagues on a different Opsgenie account/schedule don't recognise the problem.

I have had 2-3 alerts trigger, but I'm not on call at the moment and there are no longer any active alerts.

As it stands, I'd have to stop the app from overriding DND, which would risk missing alerts overnight.

Is this a known problem? Are there any setting controlling how Opsgenie overrides DND which I have configured incorrectly?

Android > Settings > DND :
Turn on automatically: 1 rule: (set to nighttime hours)
"Do Not Disturb was automatically turned on by an app (Opsgenie)"

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Hi Tim,

Thank you for reaching out. This is an issue we've seen before and is due to a limitation with the Android platform. If you are using scheduled DND mode, apps can't see what the schedule is. They can just see whether or not DND is on, so Opsgenie turns off DND mode for the notifications and then turns it back on after. 

We've found that if you're using scheduled DND times, it works better to set the app to override DND on your phone itself instead of within the Opsgenie app. You can do this on your phone under Settings > Notifications > Opsgenie. You'll want to select a notification category and then toggle 'Ignore Do not disturb' at the bottom.

FWIW, I've had this as well. Hope it can be improved. Getting notifications the whole point of this app.

Still broken

Android11. S10. Work profile.


Brennan it is not possible to do what you suggesting. App is not found.


It also not possible to do simple dnd override unless you install opsgenie into home profile.



it really useless as this 90% we need

Not being able to set DnD overrides on the work profile is a limitation of Android. The app will need to be installed on your personal profile if you need to override DnD on your device.

Why is OpsGenie re-enabling "Do Not Disturb" but in a non-scheduled configuration?

Please disable this feature, it simply does not work. Leave "Do Not Disturb" switched off. The alternative (enabling a perpetual "Do Not Disturb" that must be manually disabled) is much worse.
