Setting up webhooks with Pingdom is a real fast and simple thing, these Webhooks are the gold standard for integrating Pingdom with other systems.
To set up a webhook you do the following:
- Go to Integrations > Integrations
- Click Add new in the top right corner
- Add a name for the integration
- Point it to your webhook handling URL by typing it into the URL field
- 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 with a POST request to your URL when the status of your check changes!
To interpret the data you receive, see our developer site.
