Configuring Pushover

Pushover: is a notification service for receiving instant push notifications from a variety of sources to your device. The integration allows you to push alerts to their platform, and we have worked together to make the integration seamless. To get started, you will first need to setup a Pushover account at https://pushover.net.

Integration Functionality

  • When an alert is created in Uptime.com, a corresponding alert is issued in Pushover.

Integration Setup

First, login to your Pushover account from a desktop PC. From the Pushover homepage, copy your User Key. For advanced usage, you may also copy a Group Key in place of a User Key (see instructions below).

Install Pushover on your iOS or Android device, and login to your Pushover account.

Return to Uptime.com

In order to activate the integration of Pushover within your Uptime account, you will go to Notifications>Integrations, then click New Profile. Select Pushover as the Provider Type when adding a new push notifications profile.

Paste the User Key/Group Key into the Recipient Key field.

Obtaining a Group Key

From your Pushover homepage, Create a Group if you have not already done so. Name your group, and add the specific users and devices you plan to push alerts to. Include each user’s User Key. Once complete, click Create Delivery Group and copy the Group Key.

Return to Uptime.com, and paste the Group Key into the Recipient Key field. This Group Key will take the place of the User Key, and will broadcast notifications to all users in the Group.

Once you've configured your Pushover integration, you will need to assign it to a contact and make sure that contact is notified when a Check fails.

Assign Integration to Existing Contacts

To add your integration to an existing contact, click on or type the name of the contact into the Assign to Contacts field within the integration setup screen.

Create New Contacts for the Integration

Adding a dedicated or new contact cannot be done within the integrations screen. To do so first, click Notifications>Contacts. You can select New Contact, or add your integration to an existing contact.

Select Pushover from the Push Notifications field within the New Contact screen.

Assign Integration Contact to a Check

If you have created a new or dedicated contact for your integration, you will need to add it to specific checks. If you have assigned the integration to a contact that is already assigned to one (or more) checks, you may skip this step.

Return to your Check’s Edit screen and assign this contact to the Contacts field to be notified of a downtime event. Alert data will appear in real time.

Test Your Integration

Test your integration with one of the following two options:

  1. Force the Check assigned to your Integration to fail by altering it (HTTPS checks can use a misspelling of the domain, for example)
  2. Click Notifications>Contacts, then click Actions>Test to send a test to the Contact
