Statuspage datasource - finding the right organization name

The statuspage datasource is a great way to monitor my external dependencies, but the ‘organization name’ (the identifier for the correct status page) isn’t always easy to guess.

For example, I want to get the status from SendGrid, whose statuspage URL is, but ‘sendgrid’ doesn’t seem to be their statuspage organization name.

Any tips?

Answering my own question…

If you do a DNS lookup on the statuspage URL you can find the cname record that references the underlying statuspage organization name.

For example, using to lookup on
DNS Lookup - Check All DNS Records for Any Domain

The CNAME entry shows:

So the statuspage organization name in this case is 3tgl2vf85cht. That would be hard to guess!
