How to add a Pingdom provider
Before you configure the Web API tile for use with Pingdom you need to create a Pingdom provider in Dashboard Server. For more information on how to use the tile see How to use the Web API tile with Pingdom
Adding a provider is a one-time configuration task, and once the provider has been configured it can be used each time you configure a tile.
You may like to refer to the Pingdom API documentation or speak to your Pingdom expert.
For Pingdom the provider must be created as a simple provider:
In Dashboard Server navigate to the right-hand menu ☰ > system > Integrations
Under Integrations click Web API.
Click the authentication type Simple
In the service name box type in a suitable name, e.g. Pingdom
The base URL should be the current Pingdom API URL, for example:

Under default headers click add
Add the following:
<API token from Pingdom>

Enter a Name, leave the Access Level set to Read access and click Generate token.
Copy the API token from Pingdom before closing the window:
Paste the API token into the authorization value box in Dashboard Server, prepended by the word
