September 04, 2019 Getting Honeybadger Uptime Alerts via SMS with Zapier

UPDATE: Shortly after posting this Honeybadger was kind enough to let me know that this is functionality that they offer directly 😁

After using Honeybadger Uptime Monitoring for a few months, I found that these updates were sometimes getting lost in the everyday chatter of my error messages that I have posted to a Basecamp chat via Zapier.

With that in mind I came up with the idea to create a new Honeybadger webhook alert that would post only uptime updates to Zapier.

Below is an overview of the Zap I came up with:

With that now in place I now have Zapier text me whenever something big happens… which hopefully is rarely to never :)
