The benefits that IT teams can expect out of this:
1. Reduce noise - Group similar alerts from the same server together under a single work item(incident).
2. Full context of the issue from a single view - Freshservice will automatically associate the asset to the incident so that the agent can get the whole context from one view.
3. Automatic Routing and prioritization - Set up rules based on which the tickets created through these alerts will be prioritized correctly and routed to the right agent groups.
4. Auto closure of tickets - The ticket will be automatically resolved based on the status of the latest alert for that ticket. ex. If an alert was triggered due to a sudden spike, a new ticket is created and then the utilization might go back to normal, in this case this ticket will be auto-closed by Freshservice.
Below: a ticket created through an alert. You can also see the recent alerts grouped together under the same ticket.
PS: this is version 1 and we will continue to build on top of this.

In fact we've just implemented something along these lines. Feel free to contact me, I'd be interested in seeing what we can do better.
Our team would be very interested in testing something like this. It would fit a need that we are just now recognizing.
Hi Joe, This sounds great. We were just discussing trying to manually set up something like this for our FreshService to integrate with Kaseya and/or SolarWinds NPM. At the moment if an agent gets a server alert that requires action, the agent manually creates a FreshService ticket afterwards and that is of course not ideal. So very interested in what you are implementing here.
I too would be interested in this.
We are currently setting up a lot of event management on over 200 servers to feed into Freshservice, so this is definitely of interest to us
This would definitely be of interest to us.
This new feature would be great for us and our needs.
We'd be really interested in this as well.
I'd be interested to know more about this if possible.
Happy to beta test this when available.
Very interested in this functionality. We have alerts going out manually to staff members now. A way to better organize these alerts would be welcomed.
Looks like a really good feature and would be keen to be involved in the testing.
We use Icinga2 to provide monitoring and alerting for our environment. > 1000 objects
Please reach out and we can discuss further.
Hi, we are interested in this feature.
