Desk.com Integration

Desk.com is a popular customer service and help desk support software. Desk.com triggers notifications for cases.

What does Opsgenie offer Desk users?

Use OpsGenie's Desk.com Integration to forward Desk alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Forward Opsgenie's "add note" alert activities to Desk.com.

Functionality of the integration

  • When new case is created on Desk.com, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
  • When the case on Desk.com closed or resolved, the alert is closed in Opsgenie.
  • When a note is added to the alert in Opsgenie, the note is also added to the case on Desk.com.
