A status page helps you communicate service incidents to your end-users and stakeholders. 

The incidents could include:

  • Partial or major outages
  • Scheduled maintenance windows
  • Degraded performance

A status page allows you to let stakeholders know that services have been affected and also keep them updated as you work on getting things back to normal.

Status pages can be public or private. The former is meant for end customers and helps you build trust by being transparent about incidents and showcasing your services' reliability. The latter helps keep coordination and communication between teams smooth
