This article describes the one-time configuration to create a Pingdom provider for use with the Web API tile. For more information on how to use the tile see How to use the Web API tile with Pingdom
These steps guide you through how to create a simple provider:
- Log on to SquaredUp and navigate to the right-hand menu ☰ then system and then click on the web api perspective.

Bearer<API token from Pingdom>
You can create an API token by logging in to Pingdom > Integrations > The Pingdom API > Add API token
