Cron Job Monitoring for Python scripts
Cron monitoring in Python #
Oh Dear users can add cron job monitoring to any existing Python 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 Python code.
Cron job monitoring in generic Python #
You can use the requests library in Python to make an outgoing HTTPs call to our Ping URL.
import requests requests.get("https://ping.ohdear.app/e536e771-9ff6")
Note: make sure your script stops executing on error conditions, so the
requests.get function isn't called even if the script has failed.
