It's the summer of integrations

With 50% of the US adult population vaccinated, there’s a lot to look forward to this summer, life no longer feels like it’s on hold, and we’re fully embracing that. Get your fire hoses ready, 'cause extinguishing incidents just got easier. We’re rolling out a summer full of new integrations, product releases, events, and more.


New integration: Create Google Meet incident bridges automatically

Using the power of FireHydrant Runbooks, a Google Meet can be added with fully customizable titles and agendas based on your incident details. With the FireHydrant and Google Meet integration, you can:

  • Set a Runbook step that spins up a Google Meet

  • Spin up multiple Google Meet per incident

  • Automatically post the Google Meet link in all incident messages that get posted in Slack

  • Use it as a Runbook Template variable

  • View the Google Meet link in the incident header and table

New integration: Declare incidents from Checkly Alerts

With FireHydrant and Checkly, you can automatically send alert data from Checkly to FireHydrant to declare an incident and kick off a Runbook. Now, when a check fails, you will see an alert in your configured Slack channel.
