Incident List View Options

In addition to viewing Incidents in a standard list view, there are different views accessible by the settings icon on the right side of the list header.


Saved Searches

There are quick built-in searches for easy use in the left sidebar incidents page. These and what they filter are explained below:

All: This shows all the incidents which are open, resolved and closed incidents.

Open: This is the default view filter. This shows the incidents that are open or reopened (resolved before).

Closed: This shows only closed incidents.

Resolved: This shows only the incidents that are resolved.

Easy Searching

When a tag of an incident on the incidents page is clicked, it applies a filter to list the incidents that have that tag. This easy filtering is also performed by clicking on the team of an incident.

Custom Saved Searches

Click on the Save button on the top-right of the query bar to save a search that's based on incident attributes. This includes listing incidents with a particular tag, or incidents owned by a specific team, etc. Clicking on the Search button applies the filter and reload the incidents list. Add multiple tags by searching them separated by a space.
