With Uptrends it has never been easier to monitor the uptime or performance status of any website, server, or web service. But what if you want to monitor a series of services, and set them up quickly? Enter: Monitor Templates.

What is a Monitor Template?

A Monitor Template is a tool that can be used to add groups of new monitors using similar alert conditions, checkpoints, and maintenance window configurations. Think of them as a way of duplicating monitor configurations, rapid-fire.

Why are Monitor Templates useful?

If you are creating a series of monitors that follow the same alert condition ruleset, checkpoints for monitoring, or maintenance windows, manual configuration can take quite a lot of time and effort. By using a monitor template, you can minimize the time and effort it takes to add rules to monitors, and get back to what you do best.

How do I create a Monitor Template?

  1. Log into the Uptrends application.

  2. Navigate to the Monitor Templates page, located in the Monitor dropdown menu.

  3. On the Quick Action Menu, click the Add Monitor Template button.

  4. Now you can set the name of your template, alert conditions, checkpoints to monitor from, and maintenance windows.

  5. When you’re done, click the green Save button.

You can now apply your saved Monitor Template to any created probe, via the Monitor Templates page.
