Configuring Geckoboard

Geckoboard is fully integrated with Uptime to allow 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 set up a Geckoboard account at https://geckoboard.com/.

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

The following describes the fields shown when configuring Geckoboard within your Uptime account: 

  • Name: The reference name you desire to assign to your Pushover profile. It can assist you with organizing multiple provider profiles within your Uptime account.
  • API key:  This will be obtained from Geckoboard. Please review the Obtaining Geckoboard API Key section below for further documentation.

*Once you've configured your Geckoboard profile, you will need to assign the profile to a contact group located under Notifications>Contacts. The profile is assigned at the Push Notifications field within the contact group.
