Exporting Uptime Test Settings

If you need an export of all your tests’ settings and don’t want to use our API, you can easily do this on your test overview by clicking the “Export Settings…” button, found at the top of the page.

This will give you a file in CSV format, so it can be imported in a spreadsheet tool like Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets or OpenOffice Calc.

To properly import the file, please ensure that you only select the semicolon (;) as a separator, as other symbols may break the formatting of the file.

File Formatting

The file will always include headers in the first row. These headers explain the contents of that column.

The following columns can be found in exported file, additional columns may be added over time.
