  1. Add African Location

    It would be awesome to have a server in Africa so that updown.io would cover every continent on this planet.

  2. Still cannot prevent an updown.io check from following redirects

    I raised this same issue under this discussion almost two years - unfortunately it's been completely ignored: https://updown.uservoice.com/forums/177972-general/suggestions/38068798-add-the-ability-to-disable-following-redirects.

    I've worked around this in the past but it's starting to cause problems again, so I'm raising it again and this time I'll expand on the specifics of the problem I'm having.

    I run web services from behind Cloudflare. When you set up Cloudflare for proxying, you provide your backend DNS entries to them and enable proxying. They'll then create public facing DNS entries for you that point to Cloudflare, and proxy connections through to your backend. For this, Cloudflare automatically…

  3. Private URL monitoring

    The ability to monitor private endpoints e.g. internal VPN connections would be a great feature for us. I imagine it would have to be a small agent/executable that reports to the API (?)

  6. Add optional password access to public status page

    It would be great to have the option to add secure the public status page with a password. Could be as simple as a htpasswd.

  7. Finetune the SSL expiration alert period

    Right now, Let's Encrypt certificate expiration alert is sent 14 days, 7 days, 1 day before.

    I have a certbot that renews it 5 days before.
    So every month, I receive alerts 14 days and 7 days for all domains,
    which are perfectly normal. Hence, some 'alert noise' that I don't take into account anymore...

    Suggestion:
    Let us select a custom period for SSL expiration dates.
    I think globally, with 2 different settings: one for "standard" certificate, the other for 'let's encrypt' certificates.

    --> only alert when worth alerting :)
    --> smarter monitoring

    Hello,

    Actually 14, 7, 1 is already the special schedule for let’s encrypt certificates. This is automatically detected by updown.io so you don’t have to, normal 1-year certificates get an additional 30 days reminder.

    The threshold for let’s encrypt certs starts at 14 days because the default renew delay is 30 days before expiration: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html. This can be down to 23 days with a weekly cron for example (pretty common) so that’s why we chose 14 days, so you have plenty of time to renew but still have time to investigate and fix any potential auto-renew issues.

    If you’d rather renew your cert only 5 days before expiration that’s up to you but we won’t recommend or support this configuration as we consider it dangerous ☺

    I’ll mark this suggestion as “Under Review” to measure the need for this.

  9. webhook alias

    For reasons we have 3 opsgenie webhooks set up. While I can work out which one is which from the api key its not the greatest experience.

    It would be good to be able to set a more human readable alias so that I can easily see which each of the webhooks does when configuring new checks or bulk updating.

    Good suggestion, that is definitely a pain point. But I have a little hack for this (which I personally use), not very pretty but efficient: Add an anchor at the end of the URL to indicate an alias of your choosing. This anchor will not be sent to your server (it’s a client-side HTTP feature) but it’ll show in your recipient list and bulk edit screen so it makes it easier to distinguish URLs, example:

    https://example.com/xxxxxxx#project-A
    https://example.com/yyyyyyy#project-B

  10. [Status Page] Custom public website names for status page (different from dashbord)

    I love the new multi-site status page but I can't share it with the public because our internal designations for our services means nothing to the public.

    I would be awesome to be able to customize website names only for status pages and keep the private names for the dashboard and notifications.

    E.g: https://updown.io/p/07ws1
    "lAPInou" would be displayed as "Core" or something like that, "Dsgn BI" as "3D Engine - BI", etc.

    Bonus points if you implement a feature so we can add a description to each website :)

  14. 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.

  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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
