We’re on a role

Weekly Update

We think incident response should be open for everyone, but there are some things that are best kept within a smaller group.

We've introduced roles within incident.io, so some organization-level settings can only be changed by selected Administrators.

Users can have one of four roles: Viewers, Responders, Admins and Owners.

Viewers can:

  • View incidents in Slack and the Web Dashboard
  • Declare incidents

Viewers will automatically become responders when they get involved in an incident.

Responders can:

  • Use incident.io via Slack and the Web Dashboard
  • Create and edit Workflows and Announcement Rules
  • View organization-level settings

Admins can:

  • Do everything a responder can, plus:
  • Edit organization-level incident.io settings
  • View and edit billing settings

Owners can:

  • Do everything an admin can, plus:
  • View all private incidents

If you'd like to take a look at your Users, check out our shiny new Settings page.

n.b. Until March 1st, this feature is opt-in for existing customers.

Operational excellence starts here
