Performing Check-Ins

Honeybadger supports check-ins, which allow you to monitor things like cron jobs and other services.

To perform a check-in, call Honeybadger.check_in with the ID of the check-in in your Honeybadger project. For example:

Honeybadger.check_in('1MqIo1')

Checking In From a Rake task

Here's an example of checking in from a rake task:

task :my_task do
  # your code

  Honeybadger.check_in('1MqIo1')
end

Now your task will check in when it's executed periodically by cron, Heroku Scheduler, etc. If it ever stops checking in, Honeybadger will notify you.
