Meet Kevin and Mai (again): Navigating the Troublesome Waters of Platform Downtime.
Kevin is a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), constantly on the lookout for potential downtime that could impact their platform, kryptobro.com. Mai is his adept partner, ever-ready to troubleshoot.
In their journey, the previous version of Squadcast Status Pages served as a helpful tool, but they soon found room for improvements:
Kevin and Mai's requirements resonated with many of you, and we took notice. Consequently, we've upgraded our Status Pages to provide you with easy setup, more granular control, and increased customization options!
In the following sections, we'll dive deep into the changes and new functionalities you can expect with our updated offering.
With our new Status Pages, you now have the freedom to manually add, name, and group Components. For instance, if kryptobro.com has a mobile application, different Components, such as SDKs and APIs, can be created and Grouped under "Mobile Application." Correcting typos and rearranging the order of Components is a breeze. Moreover, for tailored tracking, your users can subscribe to specific Components.
Experience increased customization, choose from five Status messages for your components.
The expanded Component view now displays a 90-day Service Uptime history, showcasing your Reliability. Each Service Uptime graph has hover info that shows the impact of the issue and how long it lasted.
The Maintenance Window for each Component can now be displayed on the Status Page. Viewers of your Status Page can not only see upcoming and completed Maintenance Windows but also subscribe to receive Maintenance dates. No more surprises 😊
Your end customers of the Status Page(s) can now easily understand the progression of Issues with an Issue Header and progression updates. In case, there are any open incidents, they go on the top of the Status Page. With these changes, Mai can put aside her coding skills and focus on her sword-fighting abilities (just in case)
As the administrator of a Status Page, you're now in the driver's seat. You have the control over both the channels (Email and Webhooks) and the specifics (Components and Maintenance Updates ) available to your subscribers.
Private Status Pages now boast enhanced security with the introduction of password authentication.
Improved Status Pages retain previous features, such as:
With the flexibility to customize and organize Components, Groups, Issues, display Maintenance Windows, Subscriber Management and more, the new Status Pages make it easy to monitor system health and keep stakeholders informed. Try Squadcast Status Pages, check out documentation to get started.
