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

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.

To activate the integration of Pushover within your Uptime account, navigate 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, 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 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. 

You can designate a new contact from within the integration setup. Simply enter the name of your new contact into the Assign to Contacts field, and select it as depicted below: will create a new contact and assign the integration to it. You can find this contact when you click Notifications > Contact.

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
