What is a monitor? 🧑🏫
A monitor is a job that runs periodically and checks the status of a service. It can be a website, an API, or anything else that can be checked automatically.
Configure your monitor 🛠
Your endpoint check requires:

HTTP Request 📤
Customize the request sent to your endpoint.
Choose between one of the request HTTP Method:
Add custom key-value HTTP Headers to your request.
OpenStatus automatically appends the
"OpenStatus-Ping": "true"header to your request. This header is used to identify the request as a ping request and can be exluded from your analytics.

Advanced Configuration ⏱️
Define the frequency of your checks. You can choose between:
By default, all regions are enabled. You can disable some regions if you want to. Leaving it empty will check your endpoint from a random region.
The description is optional. If defined, an
Info tooltip will be added to
your monitor name.
You can always pause your monitor with the active switch button.
Get informed whenever a check fails. You can add multiple notification channels.
We send a webhook to Slack or Discord channels. Or you can also receive an email.
Create an API key and use it in your HTTP Headers to create your monitor programmatically API.
