Learn how to setup a BugSnag integration with PagerDuty.

The PagerDuty integration creates incidents in PagerDuty when error activity is reported to BugSnag.


In PagerDuty, you can set up a new integration by going to Configuration > Services > Add New Service. Enter “Bugsnag” as the Integration Type and select Add Service. From the Service details page, you will be able to find the Integration Key. This key will be needed to complete setup in BugSnag.

In BugSnag, set up the PagerDuty integration from Project Settings > Incident managment, then select PagerDuty from the Available integrations section.

You will be prompted for an Integration Key which you can find in PagerDuty as described in the step above.


Configuring alerts

Select the alerts that you want to receive from the Notify me when section. The following alert types are available:

Project alerts

  • This project has a spike in errors will alert you when there is an overall spike in all the errors that match your filter. Learn more >

Error alerts

  • A new error occurs will alert you if the first event of an error (per release stage) matches your filters.
  • An error occurs frequently will alert you when an error receives x events, or impacts x users, in y hours that match your filters, where you can define the number of events/users (x) and the time interval (y). A maximum of one notification will be triggered per time interval (y).
  • An error milestone is reached will alert you when the number of events of an error (per release stage) reaches a milestone, and the event matches your filters. The milestones are the 10th, 100th and 1000th events and then every subsequent 1000th event.
  • Every time an error occurs will alert you every time an event matching your filters is received.
  • An error is automatically reopened will alert you when an error that has been marked as fixed or snoozed (and matches your filters) receives an event that causes the error to be reopened.

Collaborator alerts

  • A collaborator changes the state of an error will alert you when a collaborator on your project manually changes the state of an error that matches your filter, for example marking an error as fixed.
