Backfill an incident

If you've had any downtime in the past, backfilling your page with previous incidents helps your page not look empty.

We prompt you to backfill incidents during the product tour when you first join Statuspage, but you can do this anytime.

  1. Navigate to Incidents from the left sidebar.

  2. Click Create incident.

  3. Select the option to Backfill an incident that happened in the past.

  4. Enter an Incident name, description, and set the date the incident occurred.

  5. Click Create.

Shows the screen and option where you backfill an incident

Backfilled incidents will appear in the "Past incidents" section at the bottom of your status page.

Adding backfilled incidents will not notify any subscribers.
