The ChatOps feature enables Moogsoft AIOps users to run tools, such as executing utilities on remote hosts, from Collaborate section of a Situation Room. This is useful when collaborating to resolve a Situation.
Tools run by ChatOps include Generic, Alert and Situation Server tools, as well as Alert and Situation tools. These are configured by Administrators under System Settings > Tools.
Please note: Your Administrator will first need to configure both your tools and the ChatOps shortcuts in the System Settings. For more information see ChatOps Shortcuts

If the ChatOps tool was successful at resolving the root cause of the incident, then it should be marking as a Resolving Step. For more information see Resolving Steps.
