Change Events — Beta

Change events represent service changes such as deploys, build completion, etc., providing contextual information that is critical during incident triage or hypercare. They can be sent via specific integrations, and they do not create alerts, incidents or notifications. Change events can be viewed within individual services’ Recent Activity timelines, on incidents and all historical changes can be viewed and filtered in the Recent Changes tab of the Service Directory.
