Webhooks Integration

To get Slack alerts, use the slack app available here

 

Setting up webhooks with Pingdom is a real fast and simple thing. First we need to clear something up though, the webhooks we're referring to here are not the same as the webhook contact method available in Beepmanager.

These types of Webhooks are the gold standard for integrating Pingdom with other systems.

To set up a Webhook you do the following:

  1. Go to Integrations > Integrations
  2. Click Add new in the top right corner
  3. Add a name for the integration
  4. Point it to your Webhook handling URL by typing it into the URL field
  5. Click Save integration

     

You're almost done! Now you need to enable it in the check settings, so head over to Monitoring > Uptime and open up a check.

Make sure to tick the box next to your newly created Webhook and you'll get all sorts of nifty data POSTed to your URL when the site goes down!

To interpret the data you receive, see our developer site.
