Where is incident number ___?

Follow

As PagerDuty and our customers grow, we've had to make some adjustments to keep things running smoothly. Historically, we made sure that incidents in your account started numbering at incident #1, from day 1, and never skipped a number…ever.

Unfortunately, guaranteeing chronological incident numbers means that sometimes, we can't create new incidents quickly enough. To address this, we've made a small change:

Going forward, you might notice some "missing" incident numbers in your incidents list. We don't delete your incident numbers, so if you do see a skipped number, you'll know that the number was skipped at the time of incident creation.

This shouldn't happen often, and it doesn't indicate a problem; in fact, it means our system is doing its job! Please contact our support team if you have any questions about incident numbering.
