Saved searches

You can filter the incidents quickly with the prebuilt search options, which are located on the to left sidebar of the incidents page. The prebuilt search filters are:

All: Lists all the incidents whether their statuses are open, resolved, and closed.

Open: This is the default view for the incident list. This option brings the incidents that are open or re-opened (resolved before).

Closed: Lists the incidents with closed status.

Resolved: Lists the incidents with resolved status.

Easy searching

When on the incidents page, click on the tag of an incident to list all incidents that have the same tag. Similarly, you can click on the team title to list all incidents related to that team.

Custom saved searches

You can create your custom searches by clicking on the Save button on the top-right of the query bar. Custom searches are based on incident attributes. For example, listing the incidents with a particular tag, or incidents owned by a specific team. Enter the attribute on the query bar and click on the Search button to list incidents according to your custom search. You may add multiple tags by separating attributes with space.

Save search query

Saving a search

Click Save on the query bar, then enter a name for your custom search, add a description, and select whether you would like to keep it private, share with team(s) or keep it public. Once you click on "Save", your custom search will appear under the Created by me title on the left sidebar.

Incident visibility

People with Owner, Admin, User, and Stakeholder roles on your Opsgenie site can view all incidents. However, Stakeholders can't take any action on the incidents since the incident details page is set to read-only mode for them.

To restrict people's access to incidents, you can create a custom role and disable the See all incidents permission. Learn more about incident permissions.
