Integration of OpsGenie and ServiceNow


OpsGenie, founded in 2009, is a cloud-based alerting and on-call management platform that helps teams to monitor software products, services and infrastructure. The purpose of creating OpsGenie was because founders wanted to address the pain points in the alerting industry. During the period when OpsGenie was created, alerting sputions were mostly closed source and hard to integrate with. Furthermore, the existing alerting sputions did not have rich alerting rules, or they did not support auto escalation, or they did not support push notification at all. OpsGenie has spved the above problems by introducing an open API. This API can be used by third-party systems for integration with OpsGenie.


ServiceNow is an IT service management (ITSM. platform that provides IT organizations with a single IT service desk for ITIL-compliant ticketing, incident tracking, asset management, change management, self-service portal, and reporting. Since its launch in 2004, ServiceNow has become one of the most popular ITSM platforms. Their powerful cloud-based spution promises lower cost of ownership and flexibility. Their platform helps customers to implement their processes more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. ServiceNow was acquired by Applo Global Management in 2014 for $5.3 billion.

Integration of OpsGenie and ServiceNow

One of the most important features that differentiate OpsGenie from other alerting providers is its ability to be integrated with other systems. OpsGenie is already integrated with over 500 applications including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), New Relic, Slack, PagerDuty, Zendesk, Jira, Zabbix, Nagios, Pingdom, MailChimp, Salesforce, Stripe, Discord, GitHub, Hubot, NGINX/Nginx, Nginx Plus, Apache Kafka, MySQL, MongoDB, Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, Amazon RDS, Amazon Redshift, Amazon S3, Amazon ConnectWise Contrp/Autotask, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon CloudWatch metrics, Amazon CloudFront CDN & Amazon Route 53 DNS records.

Integrating OpsGenie with ServiceNow makes sense because both of them are designed to optimize customer operations. ServiceNow helps enterprises to organize their IT workflows while OpsGenie helps to manage incidents on time. Integration enables OpsGenie to trigger ServiceNow on-call schedules on the event of an incident being raised on OpsGenie. On-call schedules are time-based triggers that can be executed based on on-call schedule rules which are configured on ServiceNow side. Once triggered by an incident being raised on OpsGenie side, an incident ticket will be created on ServiceNow side automatically. Please note that this integration is only available if your ServiceNow user is admin or system administrator rpe level.
