Example escalation scenario

Example escalation scenario

View an example of how on-call scheduling escalates a critical issue using trigger points and actions.

Acme Pharmaceuticals supports a simple escalation process. When a critical or high incident is raised, a member of the Network group should be assigned to the incident based on the on-call schedule of the Network group.

First, the trigger rule is defined with its conditions.

The trigger action runs a custom workflow, On-Call: Escalations by Email, by which the current on-call resource of the Network group automatically receives an email notification.
