Checkly Integration Guide

Checkly allows you to monitor the performance and correctness of your API endpoints & vital site transactions from a single, simple dashboard.

What can Zenduty do for Checkly users?

With Checkly's Integration, Zenduty sends new Checkly API downtime alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Checkly alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever Checkly detects that an API endpoint is failing, Zenduty will create an incident. When that API endpoint starts working normally, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Checkly alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
