Uptime Robot Integration Guide – VictorOps

Note – Due to recently implemented configuration changes, new integration attempts with the service are encountering issues.  We are actively investigating this problem.  If you require any support in the meantime, please email support@victorops.com

Uptime Robot is a service that monitors websites at five minute intervals. This integration will allow you to send all Uptime Robot alerts into the VictorOps timeline. The following is a brief walkthrough of the steps needed to set up this integration.

In VictorOps

In VictorOps, select Settings >> Alert Behavior >> Integrations >> Uptime Robot.

If the integration has not yet been enabled, click the “Enable Integration” button to generate your endpoint URL as seen below.  Be sure to replace the “$routing_key” section with the actual routing key you intend to use. (To view or configure route keys in VictorOps, click Alert Beahvior >> Route Keys)

 

In Uptime Robot

From the main dashboard select My Settings

Under “Alert Contacts” select Add Alert Contact

Select Web-Hook for the “Contact Type”, give it a “Friendly Name”, and then paste your VictorOps “URL to Notify” into the box. Leave the POST Value blank and select the Send as JSON checkbox. Finally select Create Alert Contact.
