Troubleshoot the Pingdom Integration

I can’t connect to Pingdom

Pingdom's free plan does not allow API access. If you've tried to connect to Pingdom and receive the error message "The account details entered could not be authorized", you'll need to upgrade to a Pingdom paid plan.

Failed to render chart

If you're seeing a "Failed to render chart" error on a Trends widget, it's possible that you are using an unsupported visualization. 

To check whether this is the case, hover over the widget and click on the more options icon in the top right corner. Next, use the Edit  option to access the widget's configuration page and look for a banner at the top:

If this is the case and you are using a Trends widget that is no longer supported, you will need to create a new one.

  1. Click  Add widget, located in the top right of your dashboard. Add_widget.jpg
  2. Search for Pingdom using the  Search sources field. Alternatively, you can also scroll down the alphabetical list of integrations until you reach the Pingdom integration.
  3. Choose the Trends widget.
  4. Configure your widget up and add it to your dashboard.

    Note: If you were previously combining Uptime and Response Time, you’ll need to create two separate visualizations (one for Uptime and one for Response Time). This is because Uptime is measured in percent whilst Response Time is measured in seconds and we've found it's difficult to understand a chart with different scales, especially, on TV dashboards.
