Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, thirteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those thirtenn, which include the StatusPage API. The StatusPage API provides developers with a solution to customer communication when their site or application is experiencing downtime. Specifically, it provides notification tools (email and SMS), downtime monitoring, insight into performance metrics, and customer customization. To learn more about the StatusPage API visit the StatusPage site as well as the StatusPage API blog post.
How will you communicate with you customers during downtime? Where will they go to find information and subscribe to updates? You could build your own status page, or you could use one already dedicated to transparency and communication so you could stay focused on your primary business. The StatusPage API monitors downtime and incidents, displays performance metrics, provides notification tools, and is joined by just one other somewhat similar API in our directory.
