sms alert with "res'd" -- already resolved?




I received an sms with the following format (partial):
ALRT #1234 on myAlertName (res’d): alertMessageText…

This was for an alert which was immediately resolved via the API. I’m configured to receive resolves through SMS but neve did for this alert. My question: does the “res’d” in parenthesis mean that this alert has already been resolved but PagerDuty is notifying me anyway?

Thanks for reaching out!

Are your notification rules currently configured to notify you immediately when an incident is assigned to you? I looked into this and the res'd part of the message is a key indicator that the SMS was an “info” message. To clarify, “info” messages would be notifications for one of the rules configured under “When any of my high-urgency incidents change…”. Based on this, it sounds like this may have been the resolve SMS you have configured to send out.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
