Use Opsgenie's GitHub integration to forward certain events (like pull requests, issues and push events) to Opsgenie with detailed information. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for GitHub alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
Functionality of the integration
- When a pull request is created in your repository in GitHub, it creates an alert in OpsGenie.
- When an issue is created in your repository in GitHub, it creates an alert in OpsGenie.
- When a push is made to your repository in GitHub, it creates an alert in OpsGenie.
- When a pull request is closed in your repository in GitHub, it closes the alert in OpsGenie.
- When an issue is closed in your repository in GitHub, it closes the alert in OpsGenie.
