Cron Job Monitoring for NodeJS applications and scripts

Cron monitoring in NodeJS

Oh Dear users can add cron job monitoring to any existing NodeJS script. When you create a cronjob monitor in your Oh Dear account, you're given a unique pingback URL that should be called every time a cronjob completes.

In this guide, we'll cover how you can implement that in your existing NodeJS code.

Cron job monitoring in generic NodeJS

You can use the built-in functions from https to make outgoing network calls.

var https = require('https');

Note: make sure your script stops executing on error conditions, so the https.get function isn't called even if the script has failed.
