Reauthorize Microsoft Teams Application
With PagerDuty’s authorization upgrade to Curity, our integrations will begin automatically refreshing expired tokens on a bi-yearly basis. Before PagerDuty can begin auto-refreshing the tokens for our Microsoft Teams’ customers, some customers’ teams will need to be initially manually refreshed. You will receive an email about this if you are currently using PagerDuty’s Microsoft Teams application for incident management and need to reauthorize your teams with old tokens.
Action Needed: Perform reauthorization for PagerDuty application in Teams with expired tokens as soon as possible:
- an instructional notification will be sent to the ‘general’ channel of all Teams with an old authorization token and
- the Teams user that originally completed the app authorization will receive a direct message prompting them to reauthorize.
Teams with old/expired tokens will no longer post incident notification into channels. Please reauthorize immediately to resume incident management in Microsoft Teams.
The notifications will walk you through Option 1 in Reauthorization Instructions.
- You will only need to perform this action once; moving forward tokens will automatically be refreshed
- Not all teams need to be reauthorized; if a team has an active token you will not be prompted and the application will refresh the token automatically. This update only impacts old expired tokens.
Action Owner: PagerDuty Admins, Account Owners, and Managers have the appropriate permissions to reauthorize Microsoft team connections to PagerDuty.
If you have any questions or concerns; please reach out to PagerDuty support for assistance.

New version of PagerDuty App for Splunk
The latest release of the PagerDuty App for Splunk (v 4.0.1) is now GA.
Maximum Open Incidents Per Service Set to 100K
There is a new product maximum of 100,000 open incidents allowed per service. With this change, services with over 100K open incidents will automatically have the auto-resolve setting enabled and set to 24 hours. This means that any new incidents on those services will be automatically resolved after they have been open for 24 hours and no further notifications will be sent for those incidents.
Most customers will see no impact. If you do run into this, it’s important to note that too many open incidents on a service is an indicator that your PagerDuty configuration could be optimized. To reduce the open incident count, we recommend using the update an incident API to bulk resolve incidents. Additionally, you can use this script for an automated way to bulk resolve incidents.
Update to Manage Incidents API
We’ve added two new product limits to the manage incidents endpoint to provide a better customer experience:
- Maximum number of requests per minute to the endpoint will be limited to 500.
- Maximum number of incidents that can be updated per API request will be set to 250 (previous limit was 500).
We recommend that impacted customers update their scripts to disperse incidents updates out across a longer period of time. Please refer to our API documentation for more information.

Aug. 14 — Paused Incident Notifications
As a new Rulesets feature, paused incident notifications allows rules to be set to create alerts, but pause incident creation and notifications for a predefined amount of time. During the pause period, new alerts will be viewable in the Alerts table with a Suspended status. These suspended alerts have new actions, allowing users to Trigger an incident from the alert during the pause period, or Resolve the alert, preventing the incident and its notifications from being created altogether.
The Service Activity module allows users to see incident activity across a multitude of their services at once, so that they can quickly understand their digital operations health, and identify if there’s a widespread major incident. It is ordered by most recently impacted service and will reorder itself when new incidents are triggered.
