Right now we have the ability to disable location-specific notifications but there isn't a great way to check for all locations down vs. more than one location down.
It would be nice to have this option.2 votes
This could be a helpful feature. Would want to better understand what happens when there is a large number of locations, but the interval between checks is long: sounds like someone could miss an outage for potentially a hour or more.
Will reach out to Melanie to better understand the use case
It would be nice to be able to upload images or files via Real Browser Checks. This could be useful for sites that require applications or images to upload as part of an application.4 votes
Thanks for the idea. I can totally see how this would be valuable. We are investigating how to do this in RBC now.
In the meantime, you can uptime files via the API Check, (By sending a POST withy a multi-part body) which at least can help you validate the functionality of an application flow involving a file upload:
Add "Bi-Weekly" to the frequency droptdown list under Blackout Periods.4 votes
Thanks for submitting the idea Don. This is should be easy to add. Will review with engineering
We have many monitorings monitoring our web site's up time and functonality. It would be great if we could set our ping test monitor and our homepage check monitor as master monitorings. If these monitors are both failing then all of the other monitors for the website are paused automatically or muted. We had an outage this morning at 12:30am for 3 hours. All of our monitors were going off which became annoying as we were trying to fix the issue.3 votes
I really like this idea, thanks Steve. Basically, if multiple checks are all testing different aspects of the thing, and a few “key” checks start failing and sending alerts, you probably don’t want to receive a flood of alerts.
We are in the currently collecting use cases for a reworking of our entire notification/alerting system. This seems like a good use case to include in our scope
The 'ignore' option on our Content Check is awesome. It would be great if we could also filter the table by 'results' > select all with similar results > and ignore en masse.8 votes
Totally agree. Basically you want a way to select multiple checks in the table and then mark all of them as ignore, similar to the in-table-bulk-operations that Rigor Optimization provides.
There is a larger need to move bulk actions like this out of Monitoring “Bulk Edit” page and into individual tables, but this could be a good place to start
For example … I really want to see the
last 24 hours, not just the last 8, but 8 is the default. I’d like to be
able to set my account to default to 24 hours.
The Settings for my account would be a good place to manage preferences like this.2 votes
We are reviewing ways to have time periods be sticky, and apply to all graphs as you move through the app. Definitely interested in learning more of your use cases
It would be nice to make sure that a check is configured properly, and we can send a sample alert to make sure all the alerting works as expected.2 votes
We are looking at reworking our notification system. Being able to test a notification seems like a reasonable use case.
We spin up EC2 instances often. It would be useful to have a connector that pulls in a list of web servers and auto-creates a monitoring check for each instance (rather than having to manually create a check for each new server that we add).5 votes
This is a great idea. Essentially we can pull a list of active services (and possibly see their open ports by looking at security groups) and automatically create checks for them.
Thumbtack was interested in this too
So you don't have to remember another username/password. Would also SSO into the help and ideas forum.4 votes
This is a great idea! Especially as we move to unifying the login between Monitoring and Optimization. And we have already built internal apps like the Tools portal that use Google Apps authentication…
