Integrations Integration Guide

Healthchecks supports Cron Monitoring to monitor nightly backups, weekly reports, cron jobs and background tasks and receive alerts when your tasks don't run on time.

What can Zenduty do for Healthchecks users?

With the Healthchecks Integration, Zenduty sends new Healthchecks 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 application engineers with detailed context around the Healthchecks alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage and remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever a health check fails on, Zenduty will create an incident. When the health check goes back to normal, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.

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