Checkly integrates with GitLab Alerts and can deliver failure, degradation, and recovery messages to any project in your GitLab installation. More specifically, Checkly will:

  • Open new alerts when a check fails.
  • Close alerts automatically when a failing check recovers.
  • Alert when SSL certificates are about to expire.
  1. First, create an Incoming Webhook. Log in to GitLab and go to “Settings” > “Operations” and expand the “Alerts” tab and select the HTTP Endpoint integration type
