Manage incidents in Jira

After you connect Jira Service Management services in Jira Software, your team can create issues and post-incident reviews (PIRs) to resolve incidents and handle follow-up actions.

Your team can filter incidents and review them by priority, affected service, and status, while also linking them to issues and PIRs.

Creating and linking issues helps capture incident details for anyone assigned to work items associated with an incident. PIRs are helpful for higher-priority incidents, letting your team discuss and document root causes, impact on customers, and follow-up actions.

Linking issues and PIRs to incidents can help your team be more proactive and help stop incidents from recurring.
