Monitoring recipes

Monitoring Recipes are pre-built configurations that simplify the process of setting up monitoring jobs for market & competitive intelligence monitoring. These recipes include pre-defined settings for scraping websites, APIs, and social media platforms, making it effortless for you to track your competitors and stay informed about industry trends.


A Monitoring Recipe is a set of instructions that define how a monitoring job should be executed. It specifies the target data types, extraction methods (and sometimes its processing steps), and other parameters, allowing you to quickly set up a monitoring job without having to spend time fine-tuning individual settings.

To create a new job based on a Monitoring Recipe, go to Monitoring -> Jobs and click on Create button.
