FireHydrant centralizes your incident management processes by integrating with the tools you already use. This article is a high-level overview of our integrations and what you can do with them. For help setting up specific integrations, reference our integration guides within the article below or on the left under their respective sections.

Alerting integrations

FireHydrant integrates with alerting tools like Opsgenie, PagerDuty, and Splunk On-Call (VictorOps) to unlock the following features:

To learn more, reference our alerting integration docs on the left under Integrations > Alerting & Monitoring. In addition, Alerting Integrations support Alert Routing, which lets you define when inbound alerts should automatically create incidents and based on what parameters.

Monitoring integrations

On top of alerting tools, FireHydrant also supports direct integrations with several monitoring providers so that any alerts raised in those platforms can automatically kick off incidents in FireHydrant. Those providers include:

Like the alerting tools, these integrations also support Alert Routing.

Messaging integrations

FireHydrant integrates with Slack so you can declare and respond to incidents where your team is already collaborating. The Slack integration allows you to conduct entire incidents end-to-end, including:

  • Declaring incidents and kicking off Runbook automation
  • Assigning roles and teams to an incident
  • Seeing who is on-call and paging teams and people
  • Adding notes to incidents
  • Capturing key messages and all events in the incident timeline
  • Resolving incidents
  • ...and more

FireHydrant also has a rudimentary Microsoft Teams integration to start incidents and notify channels. Refer to our messaging integration docs on the left under Integrations > Messaging to learn more.

Ticketing integrations

FireHydrant integrates with project issue tracking tools like Jira, Asana, and Shortcut to enable the following capabilities:

  • Automatically creating FireHydrant incidents from new tickets in the external tool
  • Automatically create a ticket in the external tool when you declare an incident in FireHydrant
  • Capturing follow-ups as tickets in the external tool and linking those to the original incident ticket
  • ...and more

Refer to our ticketing integration docs under Integrations > Ticketing to learn more.

Video Conferencing integrations

FireHydrant integrates with video conferencing tools, like Zoom, Google Meet, and Webex, to support the following functionality:

  • Automatically create a conference bridge when you declare an incident
  • Configure whether you want the call to be recorded (applies only to certain integrations)
  • Use template variables to dynamically name the meeting topic and agenda (for example, using the incident severity, incident name, and incident description)
