How to create a free status page using OpsGenie

Jan 4, 2016 by OpsGenie Team

Every service provider wants their services to be available 24x7x365. But outages and planned maintenance are inevitable occurrences for online software services. Dealing with outages and communicating with users during the outage is as important as the availability of the services provided. To keep users informed, many service providers use web based “status pages” that contain up to date information about the health of the services, incidents, and what the provider is doing to resolve the issues.

OpsGenie is an incident management system for Dev & Ops teams. Customers use OpsGenie to consolidate their alerts generated by monitoring systems and route them to the right people using on-call schedules and escalations. Because OpsGenie is an essential tool used during outages and we have vital information about the incidents; our customers have been inquiring if we can create “status pages” programmatically based on the alerts generated in OpsGenie.

Responding this request, we’ve taken up the challenge to provide this solution to manage status pages for OpsGenie customers.

An output plugin sends event data to a particular destination. Outputs are the final stage in the event pipeline.
