Integrating Monitors With Statuspage


Atlassian Statuspage is a status and incident management tool that provides visibility into your applications’ and services’ uptime. A status page can display custom metrics and events from Datadog, and you can update the status of your systems with Datadog monitor notifications.

Add Statuspage alerts as Datadog events

You can configure the Statuspage integration to track Statuspage alerts in the Events Explorer.

  1. Navigate to Integrations and search for statuspage from the list of integrations.
  2. Select the StatusPage Integration tile and click Add New.
  3. Add the status URL and custom tags you want to monitor, for example: or with datadog, test, and test1 tags. You must include at least one custom tag per page.
  4. Click the Save icon.

After five minutes, you should see monitor alerts from Statuspage appearing in the Events Explorer. Set a time frame on the top right corner and select Statuspage from the list of sources under Core.
