UptimeRobot is a SaaS-based service for monitoring uptime of internet services. It can be used to monitor the availability of system components (web applications, services, hosts), the validity of SSL certificates, the status of ports and the presence of keywords in HTTP response from the Internet.
Versio.io can import the data from UptimeRobot, historize it and integrate it into topologies. This creates an overall picture of the IT landscape including the external monitoring status of UptimeRobot.
This enables a root cause analysis of UptimeRobot data on the internal infrastructure and application components of companies in the context of an IT incident. Another benefit scenario would be the calculation of penalty payments on the basis of UptimeRobot data in the context of service level aggregations.
You can find the configuration option in Versio.io at
Environment settings -> One Importer -> Configuration -> UptimeRobot.
Here you can edit all existing configurations, create new configurations or delete existing configurations.
To add a new configuration enter a Name for your importer and an Entity suffix (default:
-uptime-robot) to clearly identify your UptimeRobot entities.
Note that the Entity suffix is fixed and cannot be changed afterwards.
Add to proceed to the configuration.
To edit an existing configuration click the arrow in the left of your importer name to expand the configuration options.
Following configuration options are available:
|Name||Meaningful name||Add the phrase "UptimeRobot" to identify importer when viewing the logs|
|Active||Option to activate and deactivate the configuration. Data is only imported if the configuration is activated.|
|API-Key||Paste in the required API-Key for the UptimeRobot API||Can be an Read-Only API-Key|
|Executing OneImporter||Select a Versio.io OneImporter to import the data based on the importer configuration.||Requires installed OneImporter: Installation instruction|
|Schedule time (cron format)||Determine the frequency of imports in CRON format||Learn more about CRON format: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron|

The Versio.io OneImporter imports UptimeRobot data based on a specific configuration into entities with a suffix defined by you (default:
-uptime-robot). To view the imported instances in Versio.io,
select 'Analytics & reporting -> Topology Analysis'. There you can select you specific instance and click it for a detailed view in the instance history viewer.
