Customization

Checkly URL

Every dashboard comes with a configurable custom subdomain under the checkly-dashboards.com domain. By default, we generate a random ID. You can change this subdomain to anything you like as long as it is unique among all Checkly users. Typically, a company name works best, e.g. acme.checkly-dashboards.com

Custom Domain

You can host your dashboard under your own domain. To make this work, you need to do two things:

  1. Add a valid custom domain to your dashboard setting.

custom domain for your dashboard

  1. Create a CNAME record in your DNS that points to checkly-dashboards.com

Any DNS provider will have the option to easily add CNAME records. For example, on AWS Route 53 this looks as follows.

In some cases, our provider will ask you to verify you are the owner of the domain by adding another TXT record to your DNS. You will see a notice similar to the one below.

Incidents

You can toggle on/off whether incidents are shown on your dashboard.

Look & Feel

You can tweak the following parts of your dashboard:

config public monitoring dashboard 1

  • title: Add a title like “ACME status dash”. This is separate from your Checkly URL or custom domain.
  • description: Add a clarifying text to explain visitors what they are looking at.
  • checks: Specify the tags of the checks you want to show on the dashboard. By default we show all checks. You can also choose to hide the tags from the dashboard.

config public monitoring dashboard 2

  • logo: Display your company logo (or any image) on the top left side of your dashboard.
  • logo link: Direct visitors to your company website when they click the logo.
  • favicon: Put the cherry on top with a custom favicon.
  • auto paginate: Depending on your screen height and amount of checks, we can paginate through them so you have a full overview.
  • show and hide P-stats: Toggle the visibility of the performance stats for all checks on the dashboard.

Next to the preset tweaks you can do to your dashboard, you can also apply custom CSS styles.
