New Pingdom API enters public beta

PingdomThings have been going so well with the new Pingdom REST API that we have decided to move forward and make it public. In fact, we made it public yesterday.

The new API will remain in beta for a few weeks just in case, but this is pretty much the final thing. It’s more of a release candidate than a beta.

The goal with this new API was to make it as powerful and flexible as possible, but still easy to use. It gives Pingdom users full access to their accounts via the API. The feedback we have received so far has been great.

The new Pingdom API at a glance

  • It’s a RESTful API.
  • It uses JSON-formatted responses.
  • You can access all your monitoring results and monitoring history.
  • You can read, write and modify all your settings.
  • You can add and remove things like checks and contacts.

Basically, anything you can do in the Pingdom control panel, you can do via the API. And we really mean that; our new control panel, coming soon, is built entirely on top of this API.

Learn more (and how to get started)

To learn more about what you can do with Pingdom’s API and how to get started, check out our API documentation.

By the way, if you’re reading this and don’t have a Pingdom account for some reason, you should know that the API works for free Pingdom accounts, too.

We’ve made the API very easy to work with, and highly flexible, so we look forward to seeing what kind of cool stuff you come up with.

Feedback

As always, we welcome your feedback. Have we missed something you think is important? Is there something you wish the API did differently? Did you find a bug? Please email your feedback to beta at Pingdom dot com.

Final note: The old Pingdom SOAP API will continue to work for now, but will be deprecated on August 31, so we encourage you to get started with the REST API as soon as possible.
