Creating a Status Page

Creating a status page only takes about a minute. Before you do so, we recommend you have at least one service configured in Rootly that you can display on your status page. You can do this by visiting Configuration > Services or if you have the PagerDuty integration configured, you can easily import services directly from PagerDuty then add them to your status page.

To create a new status page, do the following:

In the Rootly navigation bar, click on Configuration, then Status Pages.

Status page menu
Status page menu



Next, click Add New Status Page.

On the configuration page, type a page name, and add a description if you'd like. Then click Attach Services and add the services you should have configured previously.

If you want the status page to be public, you will also need to add an external domain name, and ensure that it is set to Public.

Note that for custom external domain names, you may need to talk with the team at your organization to have them help you configure a custom domain name and associated DNS.
