Create a public status page

With this article, you will learn how to set up a public status page to inform your users about the status of your website.

  • Summary

What is a public status page?

In Hitflow, the public status pages allow you to inform your users in real time about the status of your infrastructure.

Publicly communicating the status of your infrastructure can be seen as a sign of trust in your users and customers. They will be able to see for themselves the quality of your services. In addition, in the event of a failure, your users will be able to use these pages to regularly inform themselves of the situation.

To communicate with your users, the status pages take the form of a list of your services where the availability observed during the last 90 days is displayed for each service.

Creating a public status page

To create a public status page, go to your manager and then, in the navigation menu under "Alerts" click on "Status Pages".

  1. To start creating a new status page, click on the Create a page button.
  2. In the creation form, fill in both names of the page, the first being visible only in the manager as well as the alerts and the second will be visible to your users.
  3. You can set a password to limit access to the page.
  4. From the list of services, select those that should appear.
  5. Once the form is completed, you can click on the Save button to save the page.

After creation, the public status page will be automatically accessible via the link indicated in the "URL" part of the form.
You can also find this URL from the page list by clicking on the access button that will open a new tab.

Customize your public status page

You can modify several parameters of your page in order to adapt its functioning and appearance to your criteria. The customization options currently available are:

  • Add your logo by entering the URL of the image hosted on your server.
  • Configure a subdomain to customize the URL to access the page.
  • Enable automatic refresh of page information.
  • Modify the CSS style of the page to define the same colors as on your website.

Congratulations, you have created your public status page and customized it to integrate it into your website.
