    Triggering and Resolving Incidents

    When a connected PagerDuty service is enabled, any Radar test runs that fail will trigger an incident and send the notifications defined in your PagerDuty service settings. When any subsequent test run passes, the incident will be marked as resolved automatically. You can click the BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) URL to be linked directly to your BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) account.

    In order to prevent one test from clearing an incident for another, we recommend creating a PagerDuty service for each of your tests.


    Can you associate a BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) test with more than one PagerDuty service?

    Yes. You can connect as many PagerDuty services to your BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) team as you’d like. For each test within your team, select from the connected services available to enable the integration.

    Will PagerDuty incidents automatically resolve once the BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) test passes again?

    Yes, PagerDuty incidents will automatically resolve when the BlazeMeter (API Monitoring) test associated with them passes.
