The increasing complexity of modern websites and web applications means that a dependency on Application Programming Interfaces—or APIs—is unavoidable. APIs are used throughout software to define interactions between different software applications. They are also indispensable to businesses as they enable them to develop applications that can scale and provide a wealth of services without the need to build every software or server component from scratch.

Testing applications behind a login flow is cumbersome. And it gets even worse when there’s two-factor authentication (2FA) involved. Many people work around this problem by disabling it or implementing wild hacks. Automating a 2FA-based login flow is just too hard! I thought that for a long time, too. But I must admit — I was wrong.

You build it; you own it! It’s a simple mantra that has driven software development for years. The days of writing software and throwing it over the wall to operations teams are over. Instead, software development teams take ownership of what they do and own their own software operations. There is just one problem: Monitoring tools have not yet adopted the developer workflow. As a developer, the repository is the center of the workflow. It's the one single source of truth.

Learn how you can improve your Browser check workflows with our new GitHub Sync feature.

Downtime caused by API performance has serious business impact. Use Checkly's deep but easy to use API monitoring solution to check your mobile, webapp or IoT API for performance, uptime and correctness.

Checkly is the easiest way to monitor your API's and Browser click flows from a single dashboard. Use a powerful assertions engine to check all your (mobile) API's for timeliness and correctness. Use javascript to check your most crucial browser transactions. Built specifically for developers and ops teams.

We run your checks from multiple global data centers and alert you when things go south with SMS, Pagerduty etc. Add team mates, call checks from your CI/CD pipeline and publish a status page under a custom domain. We also do SSL expiry checks!

Features at a glance:

  • No more broken APIs: Make sure your API is always responds quickly and with the correct payload. Get started quickly with our Swagger or cURL importer and super easy API monitor creator.
  • No more broken shopping carts: Monitor and validate your most crucial site transactions like logins, shopping carts and onboarding flows. Take screenshots to get instant insights into what's working and what's not.
  • Alerting without limits: Keep your team up to date with a generous helping of SMS messages and unlimited email, Pagerduty, Slack and web hook notifications. Control exactly how, when and how often you get alerted. Of course, "double-checking" is enabled by default to never get false positives.
  • Insights without limits: Doing a root cause without complete and accurate data is insane. But too much detail can also be distracting. That's why next to calculating aggregates to keep an overview, Checkly stores each and every raw result for you and your team to dive into.

A better way to monitor your APIs and site click flows.
