email confirmation

i am trying to integrate UpTimeRobot with PageDuty Email Service. UpTimeRobot requires email confirmation before it can send alerts. how to I confirm an email that is sent to PagerDuty’s service email address?

Hi Maxim. Unfortunately, UptimeRobot sends confirmation emails that have to be clicked through to enable the email notifications.

There is a native integration for UptimeRobot that uses our integration keys instead of email. https://uptimerobot.com/integrations/pagerduty/

It looks like other folks may have gotten around this limitation by having UptimeRobot send notifications to an email address owned by a human and then adding a forwarding rule to PagerDuty. That’s a pretty roundabout way to get what you need. The native integration is the better choice! :smiley:
