Documentation  〉Integration with Zapier

Thanks to Zapier, you can connect your account to thousands of other applications. For example, it might allow you to send a Discord message when one of your SSL certificate is invalid or create a card on Trello when one of your checks is down.

Here are the different steps to follow in order to connect your account to Zapier.

  1. Follow this link to see the integration on Zapier.

  2. Go to your Zapier account and create a new zap. A Zap is the link between your apps on Zapier.

  3. Pick the integration.

  1. Select your trigger. A Trigger is the event that starts a Zap. For example, if you want to automate sending a text message each time one of your checks is down, the "check is down" event is the Trigger.

The "Generic alert" trigger is the quickest way to configure a Zap with For each event (check down, SSL certificate expiration, etc...) you'll know which event occurred and you'll have a description of the event (e.g. Up since 17:03:41 (UTC), after 26 minutes of downtime because: Couldn't find the string). The other triggers will give you more flexibility but will take more time to configure.

  1. Connect your acount to your Zapier account.
