I just finished my first custom event transformer, and to be honest it was a pretty unpleasant experience mainly because I found debug mode to be really flaky. It would start out working, but eventually just stop. I would have a syntax error in my transformer but the result would just be… nothing. This left me flying completely blind for debugging purposes, only knowing I’d found the issue when my transformer started creating alerts again.
I’m fairly new to PagerDuty, so it could be that I’m missing something. I was working in a new service using default settings - is it possible that the debug alarms could have been somehow hidden somewhere? Is there any kind of log I could check for clues?
If anyone can offer troubleshooting advice, or confirmation that debug mode has been flaky for them too, it would be greatly appreciated.
