Update Incident

Update an incident in your PagerDuty instance.


Field Definition Type Required
Update By
Incident ID Unique identifier of the incident that will be updated. String TRUE
Email ID Email address of the user who will update the incident. String TRUE
Type Type of integration that can be used to trigger an incident. The type can be incident or incident_reference. String TRUE

Due to a PagerDuty API limitation, if an incident is triggered as incident, it can't be changed to incident_reference. But an incident can be triggered through the API as either type.


Field Definition Type
Status Code

Result of the operation. The connector returns an HTTP status code that indicates whether the action taken by the card succeeded or failed. For example:

  • A 201 Created status code indicates success where a new resource was created.
  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.

For a full list of possible status codes, see HTTP status codes.
