PagerDuty Integration Comes to Testomato!


We’re very excited to announce a new third-party app integration with our friends over at PagerDuty!

Since our launch, we’ve had a lot of requests to provide SMS alerts for problems found during tests. Native support for this feature is on our roadmap, but we decided to integrate other options for the time being.

That’s where PagerDuty comes in!

PagerDuty is a reliable SaaS provider that plugs into IT monitoring tools and provides alerts of all forms. Connecting PagerDuty means you’ll now be able to receive alerts (SMS, phone calls, iOS/Android push notifications) with automatic alert escalation for all your Testomato incidents, and you’ll also be able to track them on the PagerDuty dashboard.

This means you’ll be able to monitor your website or application on-the-go from your mobile phone!

(Important note: In order to use PagerDuty, you must have an account through their service.)

So, let’s get started and learn how to set up integration with PagerDuty in Testomato!
