Improved Incident Tag Editing (Beta)

Editing incident tags is now more transparent and easy with several key UI improvements. BigPanda users can now see which incident tags were manually edited, along with information about who made the update and when. In addition, admins now have the power to decide which tags can be manually updated by users.

Roles and SCIM Users API

Two new APIs are coming to BigPanda, enabling new automation and management functionality.

The Roles API brings full create, retrieve, update, and delete capabilities to BigPanda roles and permissions. Use this API to easily maintain large and complex sets of roles, or manage which users are assigned to roles. Read more about the Roles API here!

The SCIM Users API enables users to provision and manage BigPanda user accounts through an existing Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), external directory, or SSO integration. Use this API to bulk manage even large and complex userbases. Read more about the SCIM Users API here!

Batch Alert Resolution

BigPanda is happy to announce a new feature enabling you to directly resolve alerts. Batch Alert Resolution allows you to resolve alerts individually or in bulk, through either the UI or an API. In addition, this feature changes the way resolution is handled within the BigPanda pipeline to dramatically improve the reliability and performance of the resolution process.

Improved AutoShare Delay Customization

AutoShare enables you to automate the ticketing and escalation of high priority or team-related incidents, dramatically speeding up the resolution process.

AutoShares are sent after a very small delay so that your team has all the initial information about a system event right away. You are able to configure this time to fit your AutoShare workflow.

You can now configure AutoShare update timing separate from the initial delay. Increase or decrease your initial delay without impacting how quickly your team will be notified as an incident progresses.

Read more about AutoShare delays in the Managing Sharing documentation.
