  1. Allow Green Status when using letsencrypt staging CA

    In dev environments is common to use the letsencrypt staging CA rather than the production one .

    This CA does not verify using the standard system ca store.

    Would be useful to allow marking the letsencrypt staging ca as allowed on a per check basis

  2. New "Hidden" status between Private and Public

    I'm really needing a "hidden" status for pages, for them to be shareable (to client ..).

    Exactly on the same model that Gdrive/Gsuite :

    Private > For your eyes Only

    Public > Shareable to the world. Can be linked on a public website. Can be found and indexed by google (and you have a lot .. https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aupdown.io

    Hidden > Only for people who know the URL, to be shared internally. With a long hash key in url that cannot be bruteforced, with meta no index , cannot be indexed by google.

    (YES, one could find the url if they hack…

  3. DNS record checks

    Hi,
    I have implemented a simple php script on one of my servers to take a query via GET method and returns the requested DNS record.
    The site is restricted to updown.io servers and uses a URL in the following format :

    https://webserver.com/lookup.php?T=A&D=google.co.uk&R=IP

    This uses the following fields :
    T - Type of record to return eg. MX/A/TXT
    D - Domain to check eg. google.co.uk
    R - Record field to return. eg. ip for ip address
    The server code simple checks if the record type is a valid one we accept, checks the domain name is in a valid format…

    Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve just merged this with another one about DNS check. This is something we’re thinking about but is not planned yet.

    In the meantime what you made is a great workaround, if other users are interested I encourage them to leave a comment here with a way to contact them so you may give them the URL of your service if you want.

  4. Meta tag "noindex" on public status page

    It seems that Google has indexed my public status page, in all available languages. This isn't really necessary; it would be useful if there was some way for me to turn on a "noindex" meta tag, preventing search engines from indexing it.

    Hi, 2 months ago we started providing canonical URLs so search engines would only display a single result (without the localized version) but it looks like this is not enough and multiple versions are still indexed. We’ll probably add some noindex to help with that.
    On the other end we’re not gonna totally block the indexing of the main status page because this is a feature, being able to lookup a status page when the monitored service is down can be useful.

  5. Test based on hash

    It would be handy if instead of content we could choose to hash the response and test if the response matches the hash.

  6. Microsoft Teams integration (not via 3rd party)

    Sending messages through a third party is not that great and imho should not be necessary for a large service like MS Teams.

  7. Provide an explanation of what "Redirections" is.

    Trying out the service and first thing I noticed is "Redirections" is about 50% of the time used. It would be great if you could provide a document or link as to how you are calculating this and what we could do to reduce it.

  8. Having a global domain as CNAME for all status pages instead of one per status page

    I would like to be able to have "https://status.domain.com/xxxx" instead of "https://xxxx.status.domain.com" :).

    This could allow me to avoid touching my DNS all the time for every check.

  12. Allow URLs with non-ascii symbols

    Allow monitoring a URL suck as http://wikipedia.org/wiki/λ or http://wikipedia.org/wiki/🍔. It's annoying to manually have to URL-encode URLs and it's hard to see what the “real” URL is in the list when it's all percentage signs and numbers.

  14. Alias for alert email addresses

    When using a service such as StatusPage for client updates, it provides a long unique email address for each type of alert we need to monitor. Without an alias it’s difficult to see if we are selecting the correct alert when assigning to each monitoring process.

  15. @channel support for Slack integration

    When a Slack notification for downtime comes through, I'd be happy to have it use @channel, to increase the chance that anyone on that channel will know about downtime as soon as possible. I don't see any way to configure that currently.

  17. Add clarification on APDEX hourly chart

    I don't know why, but I always get confused if the far right is the current hour or the far left is the current hour. A mouse-over, tool tip or guide that just says "current hour" or "24 hours ago" would help clarify at a glance.

    Indeed, it’s actually planned to add a tooltip on the Apdex with more details about the numbers which caused this score (duration, origin of requests, etc..) so the precise time will also be an information to put in this tooltip.

  18. Break down the time taken by redirects since they're often a key part of the user experience

    Currently updown.io breaks out the time of normal requests into:


    • name lookup;

    • connection;

    • tls handshake; and

    • response time

    but shows redirects as a single block of time. It would be useful to see redirects broken out the same way.

    Users often type naked domains, like example.com, into browsers. That might lead to this sequence of redirects:

    <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="http://example.com/">http://example.com/</a> -&gt; <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://example.com">https://example.com</a>
    
    <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://example.com/">https://example.com/</a> -&gt; <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://www.example.com">https://www.example.com</a>

    (HSTS preload requires the first redirect; you can't go straight from http://example.com/ to https://www.example.com.)

    Depending on how you're handling both http and naked domains the…

  19. Add the ability to disable following redirects

    Currently updown.io will follow 302 redirects when checking if a service is up. In the curl commands that are emailed when downtime is detected, this is achieved via the -L flag. It would be good if this could be disabled, so that the actual endpoint given is tested and not the endpoint at the end of the 302(s).

    An example of when this might be useful: I have a few endpoints that simply 302 to another endpoint, which I don't maintain / own / have any control over. I'm less interested in whether those endpoints are up, and more interested…
