Checkly Integration Guide

Checkly is an API & E2E monitoring platform. It allows companies to monitor all their API and browser click flows from a single console. The checks are done from different locations to help you understand how performance varies across regions. TaskCall's Checkly integration allows failures and degradations in checks discovered by Checkly to be directed to the correct on-call responders so they can address them in real-time. Notifications are sent via email, push notifications, SMS, voice calls and chat-ops integrations to increase their visibility.

  • The integration is between a TaskCall service and Checkly.
  • Incidents will automatically resolve in TaskCall when checks recover.
  • This integration only receives alerts in TaskCall from Checkly.
