          This is still planned but in the meanwhile we released read-only API key, which allows you to build truly custom status page or dashboard in javascript by calling our API directly. I thought you might be interested to know that ;)

        • 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.

            • Log of uptime/downtime

              Maybe I overlooked it, but is there a log of the incidents available? Simply a text list of the times when a website went down, and when it was up again.

                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.

              • Multiple slack integrations (more teams/channels)

                Integration with more than 1 slack team or channel, so I can use one updown account to notify multiple teams for shared servers.

                • Localized public status page

                  It would be great to provide localized versions of status page based on user agent language (i.e. russian, german etc.)

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

                          Status pages are really good, but it's sometimes simpler to have a widget to integrate into another site.
                          (badges are also very cool ;))

                            Yes actually there is an integration with http://shields.io/ planned to provide standard badges to everyone. We probably won’t do any widget though, it’s hard to do one that will look good on most websites. We’ll release read-only API keys in January though, that will allow building highly customizable status page / widget directly in javascript.

                              It would be great to have integration with OpsGenie. This would enable escalation of alerts and use their service to send the alert to the on-call colleague.

                                Say every 10 seconds. Perhaps with a restricted set of monitoring locations if that is what it takes to achieve this.

                                  • Shareable private status pages

                                    When I'm logged in, I can view our status pages at updown.io/[token]

                                    But we do monitoring for clients, and it would be great if we could share an URL to a private status page like updown.io/[token]?[random_passkey] which would allow people who have that URL to view the status page, even if they are not logged in.

                                    The random passkey would be an automatically generated alphanumerical string. There would have to be an option to expire a passkey and have a new one generated.

                                      I like the slack integration but my team is using hipchat.
                                      I'd like to see the same integration with this tool.
