// Prepare a component ID to fetch 
var componentId = 1;
 
// Get component info by ID 
cachet.getComponentById(componentId)
    .then(function (component) {
        // Log component info 
        console.log('Component', component);
    }).catch(function (err) {
        // Log errors to console 
        console.log('Fatal Error', err);
    });

// Prepare a metric point to publish (so it shows up on the metric's graph) 
var metricPoint = {
    // Metric ID 
    id: 1,
    // Metric point value 
    value: 3.37,
    // Metric point timestamp (optional, defaults to now) 
    timestamp: Math.round(new Date().getTime() / 1000)
};
 
// Publish it so it shows up on the status page 
cachet.publishMetricPoint(metricPoint)
    .then(function (response) {
        // Log API response 
        console.log('Metric point published at ' + response.data.created_at);
    }).catch(function (err) {
        // Log errors to console 
        console.log('Fatal Error', err);
    });

    // Incident name 
    name: 'Database connectivity issues',
    // Incident description (supports markdown) 
    message: 'We\'re investigating connectivity issues with the main DB.',
    // Incident status (https://docs.cachethq.io/docs/incident-statuses) 
    status: 'Investigating',
