Provides a DigitalOcean Uptime Alerts resource. Uptime Alerts provide the ability to add alerts to your DigitalOcean Uptime Checks when your endpoints are slow, unavailable, or SSL certificates are expiring.

Basic Example

# Create a new check for the target endpoint in a specific region
resource "digitalocean_uptime_check" "foobar" {
  name    = "example-europe-check"
  target  = ""
  regions = ["eu_west"]

# Create a latency alert for the uptime check
resource "digitalocean_uptime_alert" "alert-example" {
  name       = "latency-alert"
  check_id   =
  type       = "latency"
  threshold  = 300
  comparison = "greater_than"
  period     = "2m"
  notifications {
    email = ["[email protected]"]
    slack {
      channel = "Production Alerts"
      url     = ""
