Monitoring Cloudflare DNS

Monitoring your Cloudflare DNS records automatically is made easy with ZoneWatcher. After you've added your account credentials, we will automatically import all of your domains and begin monitoring them for changes.

Generating your Cloudflare API Token

To get started adding your Cloudflare account, you'll first want to generate an API token on Cloudflare's dashboard. We use this token to automatically fetch the domains and associated DNS records.

We recommend you limit the token to only the permissions required to fetch the domains and DNS records. You can do this by selecting the "Create Custom Token" template when generating the token and selecting only Zone:DNS:Read and Zone:Zone:Read. This will ensure that the token can only be used to read your DNS records and not modify them.

Cloudflare API Token Generation

Creating your Cloudflare Provider

Once you've generated your API token, you can create your new Cloudflare provider on ZoneWatcher by giving it a descriptive name and pasting in the API token you generated.

Cloudflare Provider Setup

Monitoring Your Zones

After you've created your Cloudflare provider, we will sync all the zones associated with your account and their associated DNS records. You'll be able to view them from either the Provider's page or the Zone Dashboard.
