Product News

Our product teams have been tirelessly innovating on the BigPanda platform. Here are three important features your team will want to use:

Filter

BigPanda Formula Language – FILTER function

This new capability has been added to the BigPanda Formula Language to help create sophisticated incident tags easily. The FILTER function extracts an array of values based on a conditional value for an alert or incident metadata field, like primary property, status, and source system.

Read more about the FILTER function here!

Parse

Self Service Email Parser (Beta) 

This new streamlined, simplified integration can extract alert data from an email subject or body, including status, description and more. This email parser can be configured using a simple API.

Incident Feeds

The BigPanda incident feed is now available on mobile devices, making it easier than ever to find and view incidents, drill down each one, and take action while on the go.
