Monitis Connector

Version 8

 

Intro

Monitis is an all-in-one application monitoring platform that monitors your websites, applications, servers and more. Use Domo's Monitis connector to retrieve data about external and internal monitors, full page loads, transactions, and so on. To learn more about the Monitis API, visit their page (http://www.monitis.com/docs/api.html).

You connect to your Monitis account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Monitis connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Monitis account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • A Monitis API key

  • A Monitis secret key

You can obtain both of these credentials by logging into your Monitis account then navigating to Tools > API > API Key.

Connecting to Your Monitis Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Monitis Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Monitis account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:

API Key Enter your Monitis API key.

For information about obtaining these credentials, see "Prerequisites," above.

Once you have entered valid Monitis credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Monitis DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.
