Alerting on Uptime Checks

This page shows you how to create an alerting policy for an uptime check. To create, update, and delete your uptime checks, see the Managing Uptime Checks page. You can have up to 100 uptime checks per Workspace. For details about alerting policies, see Introduction to Alerting.

Be sure to create the alerting policy for an uptime check from the Uptime Checks dashboard, as described on this page. Don't use the Alerting dashboard.
