  2. Add alert groups

    It would be helpful to create "alert groups" that consist of one or more SMS numbers, Slack channels, etc.

    For example, I could create an alert group named "Project X" that consists of two SMS numbers and a Slack channel, and then I could assign that group to any alarms that are related to "Project X". In the future, when the members of "Project X" change I can just make changes to the alert group itself, rather than having to go to each alarm and add/remove recipients.

    Thanks!

  3. read only dashboard with passwd

    Hello!
    Would be very very interesting to have a restricted read only dashboard with all our monitored webs protected with user password.
    It can be very good to give to our bosses or clients, and not being worry about they changing any config.
    Today, I make a simple excel dashboard getting times with the API because I dont have this.
    Thank you!! :-)

  4. 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.

  5. Allow API key revocation

    The super-powered API key is supposed to stay secret, but it can sometimes go public because of mistakes.
    It would be nice to be able to generate a new API key, which will revoke the old one.

  6. Weekly reports via Slack

    How can we improve updown.io?

    Weekly reports via Slack

    It's wonderful to have weekly reports sent by email. It would be awesome to have the option to send them to Slack as well. If we could choose email and/or Slack for reports (like for the alerts) it would be ideal.

  8. Ability to toggle Apdex notifications on a per-check basis

    I have two sites which I would like to have Apdex notifications enabled, and a third where the notifications are unneeded. It would be nice to be able to toggle them on/off individually rather than having a global enable/disable.

  9. Add phone number to SMS to exclude from Do not Disturb mode

    Add phone number to SMS to exclude from Do not Disturb mode. During the night my iPhone is within "DND" mode and the updown.io service does not send a phone number. I am not able to exclude the messages from the DND mode because I need to create a contact for this which is not possible because there is no phone number

    We started moving away from the “updown.io“ alphanumeric sender ID to a regular number but this will take time as we need to make sure the deliverability stays good in every country

    You can follow the migration here:
    https://headwayapp.co/updown-changelog/long-number-for-sms-alerts-(you-can-help)-106488

    If your country isn’t migrated yet please contact us so we can send some test SMS to verify deliverability with you.

  10. Don't show API key on settings without consent

    Don't show my API key on the settings page without me pressing a button.

  11. Allow custom headers in webhook requests

    It would be great if you could sent custom headers (and values) in webhook requests. This would allow you to add an API-key as a header which you can check in the system receiving the webhooks to validate it is actually the updown-io services sending the request.

    Currently this is do-able by adding a GET-parameter with a key to the webhook URL, but sending custom headers would be a more preferable option.

  13. 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.)

  14. 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.

    Hello everyone, I’ve just added a way to get the detailed results from the last 5 checks before downtime and recovery to the downtime API, all you have to do is add the “results=true” parameter, like this:

    https://updown.io/api/checks/yyyy/downtimes?api-key=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx&results=true

    Warnings:
    - This API is alpha version, it can still change.
    - The response can be huge, I recommend using this only when needed and with http gzip compression if you can.
    - The dual stack results (IPv4 and IPv6) will NOT repeat “body” and “received_headers” if they are the same as in the parent result record, to save space.

    Let me know what you think!

  19. Status page with responsive design

    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.

  20. Add Chinese monitor location

    The response time to Chinese server (located on Alibaba or Baidu for example) is very slow for non-Chinese clients.

    While I understand the need, being in China is a lot of work (mainly support and maintenance) as the network conditions are erratic and with out current double check policy would not actually notify if your website is unreachable in China (unless we have two servers here and become a regional monitoring service but that’s not the objective and we can’t just do that in every country). I’ll keep the idea open to measure interest. Also if some of you have recommendations for a dependable and affordable hosting provider in China I’m interested.
