Integrate Opsgenie with Airbrake

Airbrake logo

What does Opsgenie offer Airbrake users?

Use Opsgenie’s Airbrake Integration to forward Airbrake incidents to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When an error (incident) is captured in Airbrake, an alert is created in Opsgenie.

Add Airbrake Integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Opsgenie’s Airbrake Integration page.

Under the Free and Essentials plans, the tabs under the Team dashboard are limited to Main, Integrations, Members, and Activity Stream.

2. Specify who is notified of Airbrake alerts using the Responders field. Autocomplete suggestions are provided as you type.

Did you know that you can also add this integration from your team dashboard?

  3. From your team navigation, select Integrations,
