About the plugin
Rootly's Backstage plugin allows users to automatically sync and display incidents managed with Rootly in their Backstage Software Catalog. Users can view all incidents and the service(s) they impact, as well as historical data and trends from past incidents, all within Backstage.
Mitigate service reliability risks
Rootly's plugin for Backstage gives users visibility into trends from current and historical incidents impacting services. Leverage this information to minimize reliability risks of your critical services.
Automate your incident response processes
Build highly configurable and simple automations to streamline your incident responses processes. These might include handling internal and external communications during an incident, auto-generating retrospectives, paging responders, and more.
Use Backstage as the single source of truth
Avoid context switching by automatically syncing incident data with Backstage, so your Software Catalog can remain a single source of truth for the health of your services.
By importing your Backstage Software Catalog to Rootly, incidents are automatically associated with defined services. This allows Rootly to automatically surface in runbooks to identify action items immediately upon incident creation, reducing your time to resolution.
Browse granular incident metadata
Access historical data of any and all incidents within Backstage. You can bubble these reports up into a list view or see which incidents have impacted what services and identify trends over time.
View and update ongoing incidents
With real-time bidirectional syncing, Rootly incidents in Backstage are automatically updated as the team progresses through an incident lifecycle. This allows users to remain in Backstage while having all needed information about any ongoing incidents.
