PagerDuty Incidents doesnot tag Assignees in slack

I have integrated PagerDuty + Slack. But when incidents are created and communicated in slack channel, I was PagerDuty Message to Tag the assignee. Is such a feature already available? If so please help me with tagging assignees in slack upon the incident creation .


Hello Niteesh,

So the Incident notification is being sent to a Group Channel, right? No, it would not tag the on call user at this time. The user would need to acknowledge the Incident, possibly via Slack. But I see value in this ask so will be raising it with the Product Team as a Feature Request.

Kind regards,


IMHO it’s enough to send a message into a Slack channel with incident details like the assignee.

As an assignee, if I want a Slack notification for PagerDuty incidents, I would prefer to update my PagerDuty notification settings (eg: a Slack notification prior to a phone call). So the feature can be: add a Slack DM option in the user notification settings if the user has linked his/her Slack account to PagerDuty.
NB: the Slack DM may add a link to the Slack message in the channel in addition to the link to the PagerDuty WebUI.

Hope Niteesh and the PagerDuty team will find my opinion useful.
