    Troubleshooting


    If you are not receiving Blue Matador events in PagerDuty, follow these steps to troubleshoot the issue:

    1. Ensure that the service you created in PagerDuty for Blue Matador is enabled.

    2. Check that the event matches the severities you’ve selected in Step 7 of the setup process. For example, if the event was a Warning, make sure that you have Warnings checked. If you’ve configured Projects, make sure that the event matches both the severity and the projects you’ve selected.

    3. Check that the event has not been hidden by your Mute Rules.

    4. If you are still unable to receive notifications through PagerDuty, you should contact your account manager to have our engineering team look into it.
