UptimeRobot Integration

UptimeRobot provides a free website monitoring service, supporting multiple monitoring types including HTTP, keyword, ping, and port.

How UptimeRobot users benefit from PagerTree

UptimeRobot 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 UptimeRobot integration is one-way, meaning:

  • When a monitor is Down (alertTypeFriendlyName == 'Down') in UptimeRobot, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When a monitor is Up (alertTypeFriendlyName == 'Up') in UptimeRobot, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.
