3rd Party Status Pages
Use Statuscast to monitor and post public third party status data
Add Cloud Provider Statuses to Your Status Page
Add cloud provider statuses to your page by first logging into your administrative portal (https://[YOURDOMAIN].status.page/admin/) and navigating to Settings from the upper righthand menu or from the lower left-hand settings menu
Create a Beacon
Select Beacon from the sidebar menu and Click Create Beacon in the upper right
Choosing the Beacon type Third Party Status Page will allow you to choose from a list of third party status pages and components already mapped to Statuscast for your use
Choose a Provider
Choose the provider you would like to include
Add the components you wish to track. Click out of the box when finished to continue
StatusCast suggests subscribing to only relevant components as large cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft Azure, have a large number of components and as a result have a lot of incidents that may not be relevant to your account
Select Publication Options
Typically, you wish to share the provider's information in real time. Selecting the option to Auto-publish allows you to do so.
A summary and the ability to modify the Beacon will be shown.
View your new components in the Services tab. You may wish to edit the order they are displayed in, or even create a top level component to nest them under
Here you can create a new component for the header. For third party providers, you should select "treat as cloud component" to allow the separation of your components from the cloud components on your status pages
Order of Appearance
Drag and drop the sub components under the header component to create levels. Arrange your components in the order you'd like them to appear in your grid view
The grid view on the Status Page reflects the order of the components from the Services list
Cloud vs Local Service Components
On your status page you can create separate statuses for your assets versus cloud assets if you wish
The cloud components can be in their own widget. Check the page design settings for the widgets you wish to show Cloud components. For each widget you can include Cloud, Local or both. You can create more than one copy of the same widget on the page, so you can choose to do one widget for each if you wish.
Subscribe to provider notifications
By default users are not shown cloud provider components when subscribing to the status page. If you would like to give subscribers the option of subscribing to external cloud providers then navigate to the Settings > General >Subscriber in the admin portal and enable: Allow users to subscribe to cloud apps
Availability of external cloud providers
Information collected from third party providers is subject to change based on the availability of their public status information and it's format. Please contact StatusCast's support team([email protected]) if one of your integrated cloud providers no longer reports data
Not enough cloud providers?
StatusCast's cloud provider engine is built to continuously expand the number of services that we collect information from. If one of your organization's critical services is not listed as an available cloud provider then please contact StatusCast's support team([email protected]) and we will evaluate adding new providers
