Checkly CLI v4.1.0

CLI version v4.1.0 just came out and provides support for the new smart retry strategies we just released. Adding a retry strategy is simple. Just use the RetryStrategyBuilder and add it to any ApiCheck, BrowserCheck or CheckGroup construct.

import { ApiCheck, RetryStrategyBuilder } from 'checkly/constructs'

new ApiCheck('retrying-check-01', {
  name: 'ACME API production',
  retryStrategy: RetryStrategyBuilder.linearStrategy({
    baseBackoffSeconds: 30,
    maxRetries: 4,
    sameRegion: false,
  request: {
    method: 'GET',
    url: ''

Read more about smart retries and retry strategies on our changelog.

Further enhancements and fixes include:

  • HeartbeatCheck 's now print their ping URL to the console on creation.

  • HeartbeatCheck's are now part of our advanced example repo.

  • Various bugfixes on timeouts and typos.
