Sharing scope

You can enable Shared option to execute PagerDuty actions by the selected app's workflows. It's important to clarify that sharing your connection doesn't equate to sharing your credentials. Instead, it grants access to workflows to use your connection for execution. Rest assured, your credentials remain concealed and inaccessible to other users.

Additionally, enabling Shared option doesn't automatically start using your connection for every PagerDuty interaction. Instead, your shared connection credentials are used only when explicitly chosen. However, note that that enabling Shared option makes your connection accessible to all app admins when designing workflows in your app.


If your PagerDuty credentials change, you can reconnect Actioner with PagerDuty.

Go to Profile settings page from left bottom corner, navigate to My connections tab and then click ... ellipsis and select Reconnect. Enter your credentials and complete authorization on the opening screen.

Sharing scope

If you are an app admin, you can enable Shared credentials option if you want all users to run actions with the credentials you entered. When disabled, to execute requests and actions, each user completes authentication with their credentials.


You need to Reconnect after enabling or disabling Shared credentials.
