Custom HTTP Statuses (A New Feature for the Pro Plan)

For HTTP monitors, Uptime Robot considers them as up or down according to the HTTP statuses returned (or if “no response returns at all”).

If the HTTP status returned is:

  • between 200 and 399, it is considered as “up”
  • bigger than 399, is considered as “down”
  • with an exception:
    • equals 401 and no authentication info is defined, it is considered as up
    • equals 401 and authentication info is defined, it is considered as down

Custom HTTP Statuses

It is now possible to customize which HTTP statuses are considered as up or down.

This is pretty handy if you plan to monitor a web page which returns HTTP 404 and want it to be detected as “up”, prefer to ignore several erroneous HTTP statuses and more.

The feature is available in the Pro Plan and can be reached from the “Add/Edit Monitor dialogs of HTTP monitors>Advanced Settings>Custom HTTP Statuses tab”.

    How do I get this on keyword monitors? Is there an API to control this? A mass update for existing monitors, or a global setting?

      This only exists in HTTP monitors as keyword monitors don’t take HTTP statuses into account.
