While Locale’s command center enables already features a full-fledged incident management system where users can track, assign and resolve incidents, companies that depend on ticketing platforms for managing customer escalations still had to manually update relevant tickets on Zendesk.

With this integration now live, users can

  1. Create Zendesk tickets automatically from alerts triggered on Locale
  2. Assign tickets to groups or individuals
  3. Create custom incident messages and titles for Zendesk tickets
  4. Prioritize your tickets.

All you need is an active Zendesk account with admin privileges and Zendesk’s API access token to get started. If you’re new to creating API access tokens on Zendesk, here’s a helpful article on their help center to begin with.
