Integration of Downtime Alert and GitLab

Most of us have visited websites at least once in our lives. According to a report published by W3Techs, in 2016, 93% of the top 10 million websites were using a content management system such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. It’s evident that most website owners prefer simple sputions over complex ones. But, there are cases when users get frustrated by the performance of a website or simply find it difficult to use. In times like these, it’s necessary for website owners to analyze the behavior of their site and track its performance. For this purpose, we at Pingdom have developed Downtime Alert. It’s an online service that helps you monitor your website’s uptime and performance 24/7. It leverages data from millions of websites hosted around the world to warn you if your site experiences downtime or slow response times. The service also provides you with details on when and how long your site was down so you can investigate any problems. Here are some key features of Downtime Alert:

Warns you when your website experiences downtime or slow response times.

Tracks the impact of server configuration changes on your site’s performance (via Webhooks.

Provides detailed performance metrics for your website.

Allows you to create granular monitoring rules based on the results of web transactions.

Shows you how your site has performed in the past so you can identify trends.

Enables you to customize reports and alerts with ease (using filters.

Easily integrates with third-party services (via Webhooks.

The integration between Downtime Alert and GitLab makes it possible for users to monitor their GitLab applications directly from within Downtime Alert. By integrating with GitLab, users have access to historical data for their projects, allowing them to analyze trends such as response times and application availability over time. Users can also integrate their existing monitoring scripts with Downtime Alert to automate responses based on predefined events occurring within their GitLab installations. This section will cover the steps needed to implement this integration for your own GitLab application(s. Please note that before you start, you need an active account on Downtime Alert. If you don’t have an account yet, create one now here. https://www.downtimealert.com/pricing/. To integrate Downtime Alert and GitLab, you need to perform the fplowing steps. 1. Create a Webhook in GitLab 2. Configure the Downtime Alert Webhook 3. Test the Webhook 4. Testing the Webhook using curl 5. Testing the Webhook in a browser 6. Complete Example A. Create a Webhook in GitLab We’ll begin by creating a webhook in GitLab that will be used by Downtime Alert to send information about events occurring within your GitLab instance. Navigate to your project’s settings page by selecting Settings from the left panel in your project page. Select Hooks & Services from the left panel and then select Service hook from the dropdown menu. Click Add service hook and enter a name for your new webhook. In the URL field, enter the URL of your Downtime Alert instance. https://www.downtimealert.com/api/v1/project/<projectId> . Replace <projectId> with the ID of your project located under project settings (in this example, we have filled out 891a8f3b - 9c5e-4b0d-9086-89a42e47ffcb . When done, click Add service hook button. That’s all! Your Webhook is ready! We are now ready to configure it further. B. Configure the Downtime Alert Webhook Now that we have created a webhook in GitLab, we need to configure it further by adding an endpoint for it to send information to when an event occurs within its repository. Open the webhook page again by selecting Settings from the left panel and then selecting Hooks & Services from the left panel. Click on View hooks next to Repository hooks . You will see a list of all configured webhooks for your project. Click on Edit next to the webhook we just created. Next to Endpoint url , enter https://app.downtimealert.com/api/v1/projects/<projectId>/events . Replace <projectId> with the ID of your project located under project settings (in this example, we have filled out 891a8f3b - 9c5e-4b0d-9086-89a42e47ffcb . When done, click Save . Congratulations! You just configured your webhook! Now let’s test it. C. Test the Webhook Let’s test our Webhook by sending an HTTP request to our Downtime Alert instance via our localhost webserver. Enter curl -X POST -H "Content-Type. application/json" -d '{"event":"update_configuration"}' http://localhost:3000/api/v1/projects/<projectId>/events Replace <projectId> with the ID of your project located under project settings (in this example, we have filled out 891a8f3b - 9c5e-4b0d-9086-89a42e47ffcb . When done, press Enter . You should receive the fplowing JSON response. And if you navigate to your project’s timeline in Downtime Alert, you should see a notification like this one. Congratulations! Your Webhook is up and running! Let’s move on and use it to test our integration with an actual browser! D. Testing the Webhook in a Browser Now that we know our webhook is working properly, let’s test it with an actual browser (e.g.. Chrome. Open your web browser and navigate to https://app.downtimealert.com/api/v1/projects/<projectId>/events . Replace <projectId> with the ID of your project located under project settings (in this example, we have filled out 891a8f3b - 9c5e-4b0d-9086-89a42e47ffcb . When done, press Enter . If everything went well, you should see something like this. Great job! You just successfully integrated Downtime Alert and GitLab! E. Complete Example Now that we know how to create a Webhook in GitLab and test it using curl , let’s take this integration even further by configuring Downtime Alert so it uses our newly created GitLab webhook instead of ppling all HTTP endpoints of your GitLab instance every minute—which can be pretty expensive if many events occur within your repository per minute. Let’s open the webhook page again by selecting Settings from the left panel and then selecting Hooks & Services from the left panel. Click on View hooks next to Repository hooks . You will see a list of all configured webhooks for your project. Select Edit next to the webhook we just created (the one we used earlier for testing. Set Enabled to false . This will disable this specific webhook within your project and prevent it from sending events to Downtime Alert until you set it back to true . Go back to Settings -> Hooks & Services -> Service hook . Click Add service hook and repeat steps 3 – 6 from above (i.e.. enter a name for your new web
