How do we get notified when PagerDuty services are disabled?

HOW TO -️ October 18, 2021

We have a small team, and we're just getting started with PagerDuty. We have a very noisy service that has a lot of testing goign on around it. At times, we've had to turn the service off to keep pagers from blowing up, but then forget to turn it back on.

Is there any way to get notified when a service has been disabled?


I believe PagerDuty has built-in option to suspend its notifications for X amount of time. Would it solve your problem? Are you referring to maintenance windows? Not quite; but we could use it to disable while we're testing. I was more thinking of something along the lines of a notification that gets triggered when you pause the service itself. Yes, was thinking of maintenance windows; not aware of other solution.
