Configuring Klipfolio

Klipfolio: is an online dashboard for building real-time business dashboards. The integration allows you to view response time metrics within Klipfolio, and we have worked together to make it seamless. To get started, you will first need to set up a Klipfolio account at https://www.klipfolio.com/.

Integration Functionality

  • Metrics generated from Uptime.com checks are tracked in Klipfolio.

Integration Setup

To complete the Klipfolio Integration, you must first login to your Klipfolio account and click your name and then Account. From the Profile screen, click Edit at the top and navigate to API Key. Click Generate New API Key, then copy the API Key.  

Return to Uptime.com.

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

Paste the API Key into the API Key field, and then type a Data Source Name. When you click Save, this new Data Source will appear in Klipfolio under Library>Data Sources. Data will be available in this data source, and you can Add a Klip to view graphs, meters, and other visualizations of the uptime data related to your check. See Klipfolio’s documentation on Working With Klips for more information.

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.

First, click Notifications>Contacts>New Contact. Select Klipfolio from the Push Notifications field within the New Contact screen.

Finally, return to your Check’s Edit screen and assign the Klipfolio contact as one of the Contacts to be notified of a downtime event. Metric data may take up to 60 minutes to appear, and Klipfolio is set to update metrics every 30 minutes by default.

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
