Introducing Custom Fields

Today we're releasing custom fields, a powerful new feature that empowers you to tailor FireHydrant to your organization's specific needs and capture essential incident details.

Custom fields help you track critical states, involved parties, resolution specifics, affected services, messages, and more — almost anything you want! — all aligned with your unique workflows.

You can create text fields as well as single select and multi-select lists. You can also require custom fields on incident declaration to make sure your team is capturing exactly the right data. Any custom field can be filled out from Slack, the web interface as well as our API, and they can be used in our liquid templating for notifications and runbook steps.

To get started with Custom Fields, add your first custom field on the Incident Settings page. Be sure to check out our docs to learn how to fully leverage your custom fields.
