What is incident communication?

Incident communication is the process of informing users that a service is experiencing issues in a way that will likely impact the user experience.

The basics

  • Incidents are the main way to communicate with your users when you are experiencing user impacting issues with the services you provide to them.

  • Services model business capabilities to which subscribers can subscribe to receive updates about incidents. Any user in ilert can subscribe to incidents, services and status pages.

  • Status pages are one way to help you inform users about outages and maintenances of one or more service.

  • Metrics: Use metrics in status pages to showcase how well your services are performing. You can submit your own metrics data or import metrics from your existing tools (e.g. Datadog).
