How can we improve updown.io?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Adding HeadWayApp ID or widget code to the status pages

    I liked your usage of the HeadWayapp to show us what is new with updown.io and it gave me an idea.

    I am mapping all 150 of my websites to the subdomain status.<website>.com in order to allow people to check the status of the websites when they need to. Now, once a person sees the status page and notices an outage, the first thing they are going to be curious about is what happened. I was thinking it would be rad if we could add the "account ID" from the HEadWayapp widget code to status pages. this will allow admins…

    • API for pushover.net integration

      I use pushover.net for all of my lightweight notifications - it's simple, reliable, cheap and very good so fits well with updown.io :)

      At its simplest, integration takes the form of an API call with a couple of tokens and a customised message.

      • Longer History

        Longer history than 30 days would be excellent for troubleshooting performance issues.

          Updown.io is one of the best services I have EVER interacted with! Thank you!

            • Higher timeout threshold

              We have a couple of long running dashboard pages and a higher timeout threshold would be useful

              • Be able to set custom Apdex alert value

                Apdex alerts are currently hard-coded to 0.3 in 1 hour. It'd be nice if we could set the the threshold to a custom value rather than hard-coded at 0.3

                • Lower check frequency

                  Lower check frequency for sites that just have to be online, but nothing relies on them. (ex: 1h)

                    • Disable email alerts

                      An option to disable email alerts if Slack integration is enabled would be great, cuts down the number of notifications. Small thing but would be great :)

                        • TCP certificate expiry checks

                          Updown is great for HTTPS checks - loving the cert expiry warnings, and I can also check my mailserver with the TCP checks.

                          I would like to also check the cert validity on a non-HTTPS ports. (i.e. IMAPS or SMTPS. I'm not asking for any understanding of the protocol for non HTTP(S) ports, just connect and do cert checks.)

                          • Integration with Geckoboard

                            Geckboard is a popular system to display a variety of metrics via a dashboard for the room. I understand this can probably be done with the API, but if you did a direct integration with them I'm sure you'd see your sign-ups increase since you'd be on their integration list.

                            Just my 2 cents worth. :)

                                  Indeed this is not currently possible, there’s just the 6 months view with downtime duration per day and 24h timeline with detailed downtimes. But this is planned, I’m currently working on adding detailed failing requests to downtimes email and will later add a downtime history on the status page.

                                  More specifically, we display the status page on a widescreen TV, and we have to zoom out to fit the height of the status page, leaving a lot of unused space on the sides.

                                  • Allow using POST method for monitoring

                                    I’d like to switch to monitoring my API endpoint with updown.io, but the primary endpoint uses POST. Being able to provide custom headers is certainly nice, but being able to customize the request further (i.e. method and submitted content) would be much nicer. Site24x7 which I’m using now lets you provide form data and even check returned value for specific JSON fields.

                                      It would be nice if updown.io could send a Telegram message if somethings goes down/up
