Some Exciting Changes to our API

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been making incremental updates to our API to bring it up to date with our in-app features, a few of these updates have already been released, so now is a great time to recap and go through the new capabilities that are offered:

Page Speed

You can now fully manage your Page Speed tests through our API. You can create new tests, update existing ones as well as deleting them, and there are calls for listing current tests and grabbing the historical data too!

The same limits for data retention apply here as when managing these through app, so everything will match up to what you see there. The full documentation for the new Page Speed functions can be found here. 

SSL

SSL tests are another much requested addition to our API, and after our recent update to SSL monitoring, it made sense to prioritise this one!

For SSL tests you can create, delete, list, and update – with full control over the expiry alerts, as well as the settings for SSL validity. You can now also configure how many days before expiry you get the related alerts – which can be very handy for self signed, and other shorter term certificates.

In order to get going with this and take a look at our documentation on the new SSL API methods just click here.

Maintenance Windows

We have new functionality for our Maintenance Windows too, this has been something we wanted to add for a while as it’s a feature that really benefits from the added automation that our API can provide.

With the new API functions for Maintenance Windows, you’ll be able to set up a new window, delete an existing window, list all current windows, and update a pre-set window.

To check out the new functions for the windows and see how they can benefit your operations just click here.

There’s still more to come…

There are many further changes and additions to come, so keep an eye on our API documentation and update channels for the latest news as it comes in!
