Once the package is installed you can add the HealthCheck using the AddXXX IServiceCollection extension methods.

We use MyGet feed for preview versions of HealthChecks packages.

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
{
    services.AddHealthChecks()
        .AddSqlServer(Configuration["Data:ConnectionStrings:Sql"])
        .AddRedis(Configuration["Data:ConnectionStrings:Redis"]);
}

Each HealthCheck registration supports also name, tags, failure status and other optional parameters.

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
{
      services.AddHealthChecks()
          .AddSqlServer(
              connectionString: Configuration["Data:ConnectionStrings:Sql"],
              healthQuery: "SELECT 1;",
              name: "sql",
              failureStatus: HealthStatus.Degraded,
              tags: new string[] { "db", "sql", "sqlserver" });
}

HealthCheck push results

HealthChecks include a push model to send HealthCheckReport results into configured consumers. The project AspNetCore.HealthChecks.Publisher.ApplicationInsights, AspNetCore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Datadog, AspNetCore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Prometheus or AspNetCore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Seq define a consumers to send report results to Application Insights, Datadog, Prometheus or Seq.

Include the package in your project:

install-package AspNetcore.HealthChecks.Publisher.ApplicationInsights
install-package AspNetcore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Datadog
install-package AspNetcore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Prometheus
install-package AspNetcore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Seq

Add publisher[s] into the IHealthCheckBuilder

services.AddHealthChecks()
        .AddSqlServer(connectionString: Configuration["Data:ConnectionStrings:Sample"])
        .AddCheck<RandomHealthCheck>("random")
        .AddApplicationInsightsPublisher()
        .AddDatadogPublisher("myservice.healthchecks")
        .AddPrometheusGatewayPublisher();

HealthChecks Prometheus Exporter

If you need an endpoint to consume from prometheus instead of using Prometheus Gateway you could install AspNetCore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Prometheus.

install-package AspNetcore.HealthChecks.Publisher.Prometheus

Use the ApplicationBuilder extension method to add the endpoint with the metrics:

// default endpoint: /healthmetrics
app.UseHealthChecksPrometheusExporter();

// You could customize the endpoint
app.UseHealthChecksPrometheusExporter("/my-health-metrics");

// Customize HTTP status code returned(prometheus will not read health metrics when a default HTTP 503 is returned)
app.UseHealthChecksPrometheusExporter("/my-health-metrics", options => options.ResultStatusCodes[HealthStatus.Unhealthy] = (int)HttpStatusCode.OK);

HealthCheckUI

HealthChecksUI

UI Changelog

The project HealthChecks.UI is a minimal UI interface that stores and shows the health checks results from the configured HealthChecks uris.

To integrate HealthChecks.UI in your project you just need to add the HealthChecks.UI services and middlewares available in the package: AspNetCore.HealthChecks.UI

using HealthChecks.UI.Core;
using HealthChecks.UI.InMemory.Storage;

public class Startup
{
    public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    {
        services
        .AddHealthChecksUI()
        .AddInMemoryStorage();
    }

    public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, IHostingEnvironment env)
    {
        app
          .UseRouting()
          .UseEndpoints(config =>
           {
             config.MapHealthChecksUI();
          });
    }
}

This automatically registers a new interface on /healthchecks-ui where the spa will be served.

Optionally, MapHealthChecksUI can be configured to serve its health api, webhooks api and the front-end resources in different endpoints using the MapHealthChecksUI(setup =>) method overload. Default configured urls for this endpoints can be found here

Important note: It is important to understand that the API endpoint that the UI serves is used by the frontend spa to receive the result of all processed checks. The health reports are collected by a background hosted service and the API endpoint served at /healthchecks-api by default is the url that the spa queries.

Do not confuse this UI api endpoint with the endpoints we have to configure to declare the target apis to be checked on the UI project in the appsettings HealthChecks configuration section

When we target applications to be tested and shown on the UI interface, those endpoints have to register the UIResponseWriter that is present on the AspNetCore.HealthChecks.UI.Client as their ResponseWriter in the HealthChecksOptions when configuring MapHealthChecks method.

UI Polling interval

You can configure the polling interval in seconds for the UI inside the setup method. Default value is 10 seconds:

 .AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>
  {
     setup.SetEvaluationTimeInSeconds(5); //Configures the UI to poll for healthchecks updates every 5 seconds
  });

UI API max active requests

You can configure max active requests to the HealthChecks UI backend api using the setup method. Default value is 3 active requests:

 .AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>
  {
     setup.SetApiMaxActiveRequests(1);
     //Only one active request will be executed at a time.
     //All the excedent requests will result in 429 (Too many requests)
  });

UI Storage Providers

HealthChecks UI offers several storage providers, available as different nuget packages.

The current supported databases are:

All the storage providers are extensions of HealthChecksUIBuilder:

InMemory

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI()
    .AddInMemoryStorage();

Sql Server

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI()
    .AddSqlServerStorage("connectionString");

Postgre SQL

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI()
    .AddPostgreSqlStorage("connectionString");

MySql

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI()
    .AddMySqlStorage("connectionString");

Sqlite

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI()
    .AddSqliteStorage($"Data Source=sqlite.db");

UI Database Migrations

Database Migrations are enabled by default, if you need to disable migrations you can use the AddHealthChecksUI setup:

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI(setup => setup.DisableDatabaseMigrations())
    .AddInMemoryStorage();

Or you can use IConfiguration providers, like json file or environment variables:

 "HealthChecksUI": {
   "DisableMigrations": true
 }

Health status history timeline

By clicking details button in the healthcheck row you can preview the health status history timeline:

Timeline

Note: HealthChecks UI saves an execution history entry in the database whenever a HealthCheck status changes from Healthy to Unhealthy and viceversa.

This information is displayed in the status history timeline but we do not perform purge or cleanup tasks in users databases. In order to limit the maximum history entries that are sent by the UI Api middleware to the frontend you can do a database cleanup or set the maximum history entries served by endpoint using:

  services.AddHealthChecksUI(setup =>
  {
     // Set the maximum history entries by endpoint that will be served by the UI api middleware
      setup.MaximumHistoryEntriesPerEndpoint(50);
  });

HealthChecksUI is also available as a docker image You can read more about HealthChecks UI Docker image.

Configuration

By default HealthChecks returns a simple Status Code (200 or 503) without the HealthReport data. If you want that HealthCheck-UI shows the HealthReport data from your HealthCheck you can enable it adding an specific ResponseWriter.

 app
    .UseRouting()
    .UseEndpoints(config =>
    {
      config.MapHealthChecks("/healthz", new HealthCheckOptions
      {
        Predicate = _ => true,
        ResponseWriter = UIResponseWriter.WriteHealthCheckUIResponse
      });

WriteHealthCheckUIResponse is defined on HealthChecks.UI.Client nuget package.

To show these HealthChecks in HealthCheck-UI they have to be configured through the HealthCheck-UI settings.

You can configure these Healthchecks and webhooks by using IConfiguration providers (appsettings, user secrets, env variables) or the AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>) method can be used too.

Sample 2: Configuration using appsettings.json

{
  "HealthChecksUI": {
    "HealthChecks": [
      {
        "Name": "HTTP-Api-Basic",
        "Uri": "http://localhost:6457/healthz"
      }
    ],
    "Webhooks": [
      {
        "Name": "",
        "Uri": "",
        "Payload": "",
        "RestoredPayload": ""
      }
    ],
    "EvaluationTimeInSeconds": 10,
    "MinimumSecondsBetweenFailureNotifications": 60
  }
}

Sample 2: Configuration using setupSettings method:

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>
    {
       setup.AddHealthCheckEndpoint("endpoint1", "http://localhost:8001/healthz");
       setup.AddHealthCheckEndpoint("endpoint2", "http://remoteendpoint:9000/healthz");
       setup.AddWebhookNotification("webhook1", uri: "http://httpbin.org/status/200?code=ax3rt56s", payload: "{...}");
    })
    .AddSqlServer("connectionString");

Note: The previous configuration section was HealthChecks-UI, but due to incompatibilies with Azure Web App environment variables the section has been moved to HealthChecksUI. The UI is retro compatible and it will check the new section first, and fallback to the old section if the new section has not been declared.

1.- HealthChecks: The collection of health checks uris to evaluate.
2.- EvaluationTimeInSeconds: Number of elapsed seconds between health checks.
3.- Webhooks: If any health check returns a *Failure* result, this collections will be used to notify the error status. (Payload is the json payload and must be escaped. For more information see the notifications documentation section)
4.- MinimumSecondsBetweenFailureNotifications: The minimum seconds between failure notifications to avoid receiver flooding.
{
  "HealthChecksUI": {
    "HealthChecks": [
      {
        "Name": "HTTP-Api-Basic",
        "Uri": "http://localhost:6457/healthz"
      }
    ],
    "Webhooks": [
      {
        "Name": "",
        "Uri": "",
        "Payload": "",
        "RestoredPayload": ""
      }
    ],
    "EvaluationTimeInSeconds": 10,
    "MinimumSecondsBetweenFailureNotifications": 60
  }
}

Using relative urls in Health Checks and Webhooks configurations (UI 3.0.5 onwards)

If you are configuring the UI in the same process where the HealthChecks and Webhooks are listening, from version 3.0.5 onwards the UI can use relative urls and it will automatically discover the listening endpoints by using server IServerAddressesFeature

Sample:

  //Configuration sample with relative url health checks and webhooks

  services
    .AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>
    {
       setup.AddHealthCheckEndpoint("endpoint1", "/health-databases");
       setup.AddHealthCheckEndpoint("endpoint2", "health-messagebrokers");
       setup.AddWebhookNotification("webhook1", uri: "/notify", payload: "{...}");
    })
    .AddSqlServer("connectionString");

You can also use relative urls when using IConfiguration providers like appsettings.json

Webhooks and Failure Notifications

If the WebHooks section is configured, HealthCheck-UI automatically posts a new notification into the webhook collection. HealthCheckUI uses a simple replace method for values in the webhook's Payload and RestorePayload properties. At this moment we support two bookmarks:

[[LIVENESS]] The name of the liveness that returns Down.

[[FAILURE]] A detail message with the failure.

[[DESCRIPTIONS]] Failure descriptions

Webhooks can be configured with configuration providers and also by code. Using code allows greater customization as you can setup you own user functions to customize output messages or configuring if a payload should be sent to a given webhook endpoint.

The web hooks section contains more information and webhooks samples for Microsoft Teams, Azure Functions, Slack and more.

UI Style and branding customization

Sample of dotnet styled UI

HealthChecksUIBranding

Since version 2.2.34, UI supports custom styles and branding by using a custom style sheet and css variables. To add your custom styles sheet, use the UI setup method:

  app
   .UseRouting()
   .UseEndpoints(config =>
    {
      config.MapHealthChecksUI(setup =>
      {
        setup.AddCustomStylesheet("dotnet.css");
      });
   });

You can visit the section custom styles and branding to find source samples and get further information about custom css properties.

UI Configure HttpClient and HttpMessageHandler for Api and Webhooks endpoints

If you need to configure a proxy, or set an authentication header, the UI allows you to configure the HttpMessageHandler and the HttpClient for the webhooks and healtheck api endpoints.

services.AddHealthChecksUI(setupSettings: setup =>
{
    setup.ConfigureApiEndpointHttpclient((sp, client) =>
    {
        client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Bearer", "supertoken");
    })
    .UseApiEndpointHttpMessageHandler(sp =>
        {
            return new HttpClientHandler
            {
                Proxy = new WebProxy("http://proxy:8080")
            };
        })
    .ConfigureWebhooksEndpointHttpclient((sp, client) =>
    {
        client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Bearer", "sampletoken");
    })
    .UseWebhookEndpointHttpMessageHandler(sp =>
    {
        return new HttpClientHandler()
        {
            Properties =
            {
                ["prop"] = "value"
            }
        };
    });
})
.AddInMemoryStorage();

UI Kubernetes Operator

If you are running your workloads in kubernetes, you can benefit from it and have your healthchecks environment ready and monitoring in seconds.

You can get for information in our HealthChecks Operator docs

UI Kubernetes automatic services discovery

HealthChecks UI supports automatic discovery of k8s services exposing pods that have health checks endpoints. This means, you can benefit from it and avoid registering all the endpoints you want to check and let the UI discover them using the k8s api.

You can get more information here

HealthChecks as Release Gates for Azure DevOps Pipelines

HealthChecks can be used as Release Gates for Azure DevOps using this Visual Studio Market place Extension.

Check this README on how to configure it.

Protected HealthChecks.UI with OpendId Connect

There are some scenarios where you can find useful to restrict access for users on HealthChecks UI, maybe for users who belong to some role, based on some claim value etc.

We can leverage the ASP.NET Core Authentication/Authorization features to easily implement it. You can see a fully functional example using IdentityServer4 here but you can use Azure AD, Auth0, Okta, etc.

Check this README on how to configure it.
