Slack is requiring all Slack Apps to be updated for Granular Permissions. This update improves the security of our Slack integration by limiting the permissions. Status.io will only request permission to post messages to a single channel.
An email will automatically be sent to all subscribers advising of this update with instructions to resubscribe. Status notifications will not be received in their Slack channel until they resubscribe.
Slack status notification messages will display the Status.io icon. If you had previously set up a custom icon, it will not be used. This is a limitation introduced by Slack’s API changes. We will be watching closely for future updates, as we would love to re-introduce this feature.
Learn more about the Slack update from Slack’s Developer Blog.
Pingdom recently updated their API to version 3.1. This update is security focused and requires all current Pingdom metrics to be updated in your Status.io account.
Pingdom accounts are now connected using a read-only API token instead of the legacy username and password credentials.
To complete the update, your Pingdom API token must be added to each of your Status.io metrics. Please review our Knowledge Base article for instructions.
Tip: Connect multiple Pingdom accounts by using multiple API tokens.
If you do not perform this change before September 1st, your metrics will stop working.
Learn more about the Pingdom API improvements in Pingdom’s official announcement.
