Uptime Integration Guide

Uptime Integration

Uptime checks your website availability at one minute intervals from 30 different locations across 6 continents. Uptime & performance monitoring made easy.

How Uptime users benefit from PagerTree

Uptime triggers user defined alerts by monitoring websites. PagerTree acts as the dispatcher for these alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules. PagerTree notifies them via email, sms, voice, and/or push notifications until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of Integration

The Uptime integration is one-way, meaning:

  • When a check is Down (type == 'alert_raised') in Uptime, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When a check is Up (type == 'alert_cleared') in Uptime, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
