Azure Status Page Generator available as Site Extension

When I started to think about Status Pages several requirements that need to be full filled came to my mind, e.g. the status page needs to …

  • …run on a separate infrastructure, e.g. a different geographical region or in a different cloud infrastructure
  • … support client side meters which are pushed to the status page directly out of the application
  • … support server side meters which are executed from the status page on a recurrent schedule
  • … communicate service outages to the customers
  • … support push communication to the operations staff with all the details to bring the service back on track

There are several SaaS services offering a solution on the market, e.g. https://statuspage.io. The Azure Status Page Generator is a project intended to offer a similar service, self hosted in Azure App Services. The Status Page Generator comes as a Azure App Service Site Extension that allows everybody to create status pages in Azure within minutes.

The services runs directly under all Azure App Service Plans and implements the following basic features:

  • Displays Status for several different components and meters
  • Allows customising and personalisation
  • Notifies staff via PushOver notifications when a meter fails
  • Supports Client Side and Server Side Meters

If you would like to contribute, please visit our project page at GitHub. Just want to build a Status Page in minutes, install the Azure App Service Site Extension from the Site Extensions Gallery.
