This actor will let you know about failed or time outed runs of your actors and tasks via Slack or email. It can also notice you about successful runs with empty dataset, check JSON schema of dataset items, or about runs that are running for too long.

To run the code examples, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token. For a more detailed explanation, please read about running Actors via the API in Apify Docs.

import { ApifyClient } from 'apify-client';

// Initialize the ApifyClient with API token
const client = new ApifyClient({
    token: '<YOUR_API_TOKEN>',

// Prepare Actor input
const input = {
    "config": [
            "actorId": "apify/web-scraper",
            "minDatasetItems": 0,
            "maxRunTimeSecs": 3600

(async () => {
    // Run the Actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await"jannovotny/failed-runs-monitor").call(input);

    // Fetch and print Actor results from the run's dataset (if any)
    console.log('Results from dataset');
    const { items } = await client.dataset(run.defaultDatasetId).listItems();
    items.forEach((item) => {
