Manually create an Incident Response alert

Create an alert to test a new automation rule or if you think an issue poses a risk and should be evaluated as soon as possible.

Before you begin

Role required: Responder, Manager, or Administrator


  1. Log in to Lightstep Incident Response.
  2. On the left navigation pane, select Alerts.
  3. Select Create alert from the list view header.
  4. In the popup, enter a description, select a Priority, and a Service.
  5. Select Submit.
    The alert view automatically refreshes your list view. Applicable response rules are triggered, as well as any on-call escalation workflows for that service’s on-call team.
