Webhook subscribers will receive a POST request containing a JSON payload for incident and planned maintenance status updates.

IRC Notifications

We would like to introduce you to the newest memeber of the Status.io family: Statusbot

Statusbot is a friendly bot who hangs around your IRC channel and posts status updates.

Example Incident Update

Statusbot Limitations

IRC notifications are still in the experimental phase. If you try out this feature, we would appreciate any feedback.

Current limitations:

  • Only supports the FreeNode IRC network
  • Maintenance updates are not supported

Add Statusbot to your channel

To set up IRC notifications, navigate on over to the Settings view in the Dashboard. Enter the channel name on the FreeNode network. The ‘#’ or ‘##’ must be included in the channel name.

irc-settings

After successful configuration, Statusbot will join your channel.

Custom CSS

Last month we rolled out custom HTML, adding the ability to inject a custom header and footer on your status page.

Today we’re announcing custom CSS functionality.

Paste your CSS directly in the Dashboard Design view.

Here is an example to get you started:
