Send alerts to Squadcast from Cronitor

Cronitor is a simple monitoring tool for every application that provides performance insights and uptime monitoring for cron jobs, websites and APIs.

Route detailed alerts from Cronitor to the right users in Squadcast.

Using Cronitor as an Alert Source

  1. Navigate to Services -> Service Overview -> select or search for your Service. Expand the accordion -> In the Alert Sources section, click Add.

2. Select Cronitor. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within Cronitor. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source -> Done.


When an alert source turns Active, it’ll show up under Configured Alert Sources. You can either generate a test alert from the integration or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source. An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service.

Create a Squadcast Webhook Alert in Cronitor

(1) Login to your Cronitor dashboard. Head over to the Settings tab and click on Alerts

(2) Click on Create Notification List. Fill in the Name, Unique Key and paste the previously copied Squadcast Webhook URL in the placeholder for Webhook Endpoints. Then click on Save Notification List

The created alert can then be added to Jobs, Checks & Heartbeats.

That's it, you are good to go! Your Cronitor integration is now complete. Whenever Cronitor fires an alert, an incident will be created in Squadcast for it. Also, when an alert is resolved in Cronitor, the corresponding incident gets auto-resolved in Squadcast.
