Our Intercom integration makes easy to keep track of bugs and feature requests and interact with the customers who report them.

Linear and Intercom logos


The Intercom integration lets you create and link Linear issues from Intercom conversations. Linked issues, their status, and relevant assignee show up in the sidebar in Intercom. Linked Intercom conversations will show up in Linear issues as link attachments.

This integration is available on Linear's Business and Enterprise plans.

G then S to go to Settings > Workspace > Integrations > Intercom


Enable the integration in Linear from workspace settings. A Linear app will show up in the Conversation details sidebar in Intercom with options to create issues or link issues.


Create new issues

Create a new issue using the button from the righthand sidebar. It will bring up a form which requires a title and that you assign a team. You can also optionally include a description with additional details from the Intercom conversation, assign a priority, add an assignee or add a label.

Issues created through the integration will be sent to the Linear team's Triage Inbox if you've enabled that feature. The Intercom conversation will show up as a link attachment in the Linear issue.

Get more out of the Intercom integration by enabling the Triage feature for your teams. Any issues created from Intercom will go to Triage when enabled (otherwise, the issues will be added to the first backlog status in your team).

Use templates

Linear admins can designate up to 5 templates to be available for quick use from within the Linear integration in Intercom. Selecting any of these templates will pre-fill issue property fields appropriately, helping to speed up issue creation and maintain a high level of data hygiene in your issues.

Search and link issues

Click the link issue option and then search for it by title or issue ID. Linked issues will be added as links to the issue. Optionally add all or parts of the newly linked conversation to the Linear issue as a comment.

View issue details

From the Intercom conversation, you will see all linked issues in the sidebar along with the issue ID, status, and assignee. Click the issue title from the Intercom sidebar to view more details. From here, you will also have the the option to view the issue in Linear or remove the link with the associated Linear issue.

User Access

Anyone in Intercom can create or link Linear issues and see the issue details in the sidebar. Only Linear users will be able to view linked issues in Linear. If the person who created the issue is a Linear member, the issue will show that it was created by them and they'll see the issue under Created in My Issues. Otherwise, the issue will show it was created by Intercom.

Re-open conversations

In the integration settings page, you can automate the reopening of linked conversations when the associated issue is marked as completed, cancelled or a comment is made. The integration will post an internal note and re-open the conversation in Intercom so it's easy to follow up with customers. Both closed and snoozed conversations will be reopened.

Link multiple issues

You can link multiple Intercom conversations to a single Linear issue. You can also link multiple Linear issues to a single conversation in Intercom.

Show comments

Optionally set the integration to post an internal note when a comment is added to Linear issues and/or when the issue is updated to any status. Intercom users will not be able to see Linear comments but can click the link to view them if they are also in the Linear workspace.

More status updates

By default, Intercom posts a note when issues are created, cancelled, or completed. Optionally set the integration to post an internal note (and re-open the conversation for the agent) whenever the issue status is updated.
