Multi-step API Monitoring is currently in public beta.

API Monitoring

Keep your APIs up and functioning 24/7

Multi-step monitoring

Test your APIs from top to bottom by setting up multiple HTTP requests. Retrieve data from each request and use it to perform tasks in other steps.

Monitor for performance

Check the performance of every request, and set assertions for maximum response times. Spot trends in your performance dashboards.

Verify API functionality

Test redirects, authentication, perform CRUD, or any other API interaction. Monitor for result codes, and check if your API returns expected content.

Test from 168 locations

Know the second your API goes down, and track your API SLAs. Monitor the APIs you rely on from more than 168 worldwide checkpoints.

Get alerted immediately

With tests as frequent as every minute, you will know the moment your API is in trouble with alerts and escalations from Uptrends.

Easy setup

You don't have to be a rocket scientist. We built an intuitive, easy to understand step-builder that everyone can use.

Millions of customers fly with Virgin Australia each year resulting in millions of transactions. API Monitoring helps us to get as much information as we can to diagnose underlying problems.”

Build and test the API calls your end users use

Set up API monitors to cover your most critical, real-life use cases, and ensure you find out about any underlying issues before your customers do.

Have full control

You will have full control over the HTTP request content. Set the HTTP method, URL, request headers, and request body for each request.

Define assertions

With assertions, you set up detailed checks for each response. Verify the HTTP status code, content checks, request duration, and more.

Add authentication

Access your protected APIs by adding the necessary authentication (Basic, NTLM, Digest, and OAuth) method in a few simple clicks.

RegEx pattern matching

Use multiple regular expressions to set up complex pattern matching regardless of whether your API returns XML or JSON responses.

Pull data from request to request

Each step has the ability to create new variables and has access to the stored variables that are created by other steps, so you can re-use previously captured data in any part of your scenarios.

Continuously test your API responses

Are you using programs like Postman, Fiddler or SoapUI to test your API? We love those tools too, but manual testing will only get you so far. You need continuous automated testing to monitor changing circumstances, for example:

  • Failing resources,
  • Network issues,
  • Availability of the underlying database,
  • Expired security credentials, and
  • Much more!

Take it step-by-step

By using Uptrends' multi-step API monitoring, you can set up extremely powerful scenarios. And the fun thing is you don't need any programming skills to start building!

Configure steps easily

We won't call it plug and play, but you don't have to be a whiz kid to start monitoring. Seriously, everyone can set up complex scenarios at ease.

Inspect detailed reports

Inspect detailed step reports that include the total duration, HTTP status code, passed or failed assertions, and request and response headers.

Know when your APIs break

With tests as frequent as every minute, you will know the moment your API is in trouble. Get alerts by SMS, email, voice, or integrations like Slack.
