Connectors: PagerDuty

Below are some "API Fortress + PagerDuty" integration benefits:

  • Notify on-call responders based on failures in your API Fortress tests.
  • Send critical information on the failure as well as a link to the test report from the failed test.
  • Create high and low urgency incidents based on the severity of the failure via dynamic tags in the test.

This connector does not come pre-loaded out of the box, and will need to be loaded separately. To learn how to load the connector into your API Fortress instance click here.
