Please provide option to test a monitor before putting it live

When I am adding a new monitor e.g. for a website, there no option to test my checks whether it passes or fails before put into the production mode. To avoid false alerts, it will be good to have an option to validate the current status of a monitor before putting it in active condition. There is no point of adding a monitor if it fails immediately after adding. I rather correct the condition first and then add the monitor. Specifically this will be useful when I am checking rest endpoints or websites with certain conditions attached to it e.g. return some JSON, or a string etc etc. and I want to refine the return string I am checking over time.

Re: Please provide option to test a monitor before putting it live

Hello,

    A down alert will not be generated when adding a new website monitor. Any failed checks should result in a "Configuration Error" state until the monitor is edited to a working state and is reported as up. However if you edit the monitor after it's first reported as up, any failures due to the new configuration will result in a down alert.

Regards,

Kurian
