Secondary alerts for the same issue

Hi , 

I have Zendesk integrated with OpsGenie. When a critical issue is created in Zendesk, Alert is been triggered. This works like a charm . 

What I want to do is, when L1 agent triggers a macro in Zendesk to "Escalate to L2" (adds a tag dispatched_to_l2), new alert should be created for the new team (L2 team rota), and the previous Alert should be closed. 

Now, deduplication is preventing me from doing this. I can see secondary alerts coming in, but not being triggered. 

The ideal case would be that when a ticket is Zendesk is escalated to L2, Incident would be formed that would incorporate initial Alert and this secondary one, aimed at the L2 team. Primary Alert should be closed, as previously stated. 

How this can be done ? Ty

Hi @Dusan Vuckovic - I have seen a similar workflow configured that involves multiple triggers to be configured. So when a ticket is created, it triggers an alert to be created in Opsgenie. then when the team is changed in Zendesk, it will first trigger the initial alert to be closed in Opsgenie, and then trigger a new alert to be created for the L2 team in Opsgenie.

Opsgenie can only execute 1 action off a single received request, so Zendesk will need to send 2 triggers, 1 to close first alert, and another to create a new alert.


You can reach out to our support team via in-app chat, emailing, or filing a ticket with us through


And we should be able to work with you to test this out.




Hi Samir, 

it is as you say. Only diff is there is no "Close" action for Zendesk connector, for some reason. Only way to implement was to use Email connector in order to close out alerts. 

Zendesk connector needs improvement. 


Thank you for the answer
