Automating checkpoint tasks

When you’re into automating repetitive tasks related to your Uptrends setup, you may have been wondering about which checkpoint servers are available for your monitors, how to specify which monitors should run in which countries or continents, and how to obtain a full list of servers for the countries you’re interested in - possibly to create a whitelist for your firewall configuration.

The Checkpoint API could already return a full list of checkpoints, including the appropriate IP addresses, but there was no way to figure out which continents contains which countries, and the checkpoints contained in each country.

You can now use the new /CheckpointRegion functions to retrieve all of this information. Check it out in the Checkpoint API section of our Swagger docs.
