What is App (cron job) monitoring?
App (cron job) monitoring is a feature that allows you to track the uptime of apps, batch jobs, nightly services, cron jobs, and other tasks that don’t expose an endpoint. The way it works is simple: First log into your SSLDetect.com create an App. The App will have an API key which can be used to call our App Ping API (see the docs).
How does App monitoring work?
When your app pings the App Ping API it specifies how long it will be until the app returns with another ping (in minutes). As long as your app keeps sending pings then we know your App is active. But if our API doesn’t receive another ping within the expected time interval, we’ll trigger Alerts.
