Lightstep is a vital tool in your Incident Response flow. In this Learning Path, you’ll learn how by improving your instrumentation and configuring Lightstep, you can significantly increase the efficiency of your response process.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use OpenTracing tags to provide contextual information about your operations and query, filter, and group by attributes that reflect your important business values.
  • Create alerts in Lightstep and integrate with Slack to have your on-call team notified whenever SLO thresholds are breached. Notifications contain links back into Lightstep so users can quickly begin their investigation.
  • Create Workflow Links to allow users to quickly access external tools like playbook pages, Git repos, or Slack channels.
  • Once configured, see how your on-call team will work in Lightstep to quickly investigate and resolve an issue.
