Once you've configured your Klipfolio 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 the Klipfolio option from the Integrations field within the Add 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. 

Metric data is initiated via PULL request and will appear at user-defined intervals. Metrics are sent in fifteen-minute intervals, and metric data may take up to 30 minutes to initially appear.

Please note: Response time data is stored based on account usage. stores hourly data for a maximum of 90 days, and daily check data for a period of up to 24 months.


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
