The company says its new incident workflows capabilities “streamline the complex orchestration of processes during an incident and make the response process faster, automated, and consistent,” while new automation actions built in across Operations Cloud experience now orchestrates automated diagnostics and remediation steps.
Sean Scott, Chief Product Officer at PagerDuty, said, “The realities of modern work and the systems teams use are misaligned, and knowledge workers are facing increased operational complexity due to continued digitalization and… massive influx of data.

So, what’s the additional insight into PagerDuty’s Summit 2022 announcements?
Incident workflows: automate major incident response steps to save time
An all-new capability, incident workflows are quick to design and activate, with no-code, if-this-then-that logic that simplifies setup and speeds time to value. With automated incident workflows, companies can trigger common incident action sequences, such as sending automated status updates to key stakeholders, creating per-incident communication channels that immediately add relevant speakers, and more. These customizable workflows enable consistent and predictable responses across the organization. PagerDuty Incident Workflows will be available later this year.
Automation actions with Event Intelligence, Customer Service Operations, and in Slack and Mobile: Enable automated diagnostics and remediation to accelerate incident resolution through the PagerDuty Operations Cloud.
Now integrated across the PagerDuty platform, Automation Actions enables easy automated diagnostics and remediation. Automation capabilities can now be triggered immediately by events through PagerDuty’s Event Intelligence or manually during incidents by responders to diagnose and resolve issues and improve customer experience and support. With automation actions, responders can run automated diagnostics to investigate status, get context, or directly initiate runbook automation to remediate an incident as it occurs and prevent search for a subject matter expert.
With Automation Actions for Customer Service Operations, agents are now empowered to validate customer-impacting issues by running automated actions directly from the PagerDuty app in Salesforce Service Cloud. This can reduce resolution time, as well as the number of incidents escalated to back-end teams.
Over 22 new features and other product enhancements were introduced to customers, along with incident workflows and automation actions, including: Terraform support for event orchestration, notification templates status update, service standards, service performance report, and integration with Salesforce Service Cloud Incident Object.
