System Events are a great tool to get more insight into your team’s activity within the Rigor app. They appear alongside comments and alerts in the Recent Activity stream and keep a record of significant changes made to each check, including when each change occurred and who triggered it.

Activity Stream System Event

System Events appear automatically whenever a check is

  • created
  • edited
  • paused/unpaused
  • muted/unmuted
  • run manually
  • and whenever someone takes or releases ownership of an issue


After a check is edited, you also get a detailed list of what fields changed so you can keep track of your check configurations over time.

Edit System Event

Now the next time a check fails unexpectedly, you can take a look at the Recent Activity stream to see if someone edited the check right before the error occurred. Or, if a check is muted accidentally, you can see who muted it and how long you’ve been missing out on alerts.

We hope System Events make it easier to maintain your checks and keep up with your team’s activity in the app. If you have an idea about how to make the Recent Activity stream even better, let us know.
