    You can specify different notification settings per channel in slack, meaning you can tell people to set it to "Every new message" instead of "Just @mentions".

    It's not perfect, but a big improvement. Downside is that if people start chatting about incidents in that channel, it becomes annoying.

    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!

    This is a really helpful feature for reporting back to stake-holders. I tested the API, and although you get time and duration of a failed check, I would also like to see (both on the web page and the API) from which location/locations the check failed. That is a nice way to identify if there is a routing problem causing a false positive, or if it is a wide-spread outage.

    I would even be satisified if failed locations was just part of the slack integration, giving me direct info to evaluate if it is a partial outage which is region-specific.
