Automated Monitoring

helix-ops provides the following command line tools intended to be run as part of your deployment pipeline to automate your monitoring:

Statuspage: Automated Update of Components

statuspage allows to automatically create components in Statuspage and return its automation email address.


$ npx statuspage
statuspage <cmd>

  statuspage setup  Create or reuse a Statuspage component

  --page_id, --pageId                     Statuspage Page ID (or env

  --incubator                             Flag as incubator component

New Relic Synthetics Setup

Use with CircleCI

You can invoke the adobe/helix-post-deploy orb in your CircleCI config.yaml and use the monitoring command as a step in your job, with optional parameters. Note: you will still need to add @adobe/helix-ops as a dependency in your package.json.
