GitHub integration with Incident Response

GitHub is an Internet hosting service for software development and version control using Git. It provides the distributed version control of Git plus access control, bug tracking, software feature requests, task management, continuous integration, and wikis for every project.

What does Incident Response offer GitHub users?

Use GitHub integration to send alerts to Incident Response with detailed information.

Incident Response acts as a handler for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on escalation policies, previously provided points of contact, and on-call schedules. Users are notified based on their notification preferences. Alerts are escalated until they are acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When the alert conditions are met, an alert is created on the GitHub portal and the same is sent to the Incident Response using the webhook url defined in the notification channel.
