Is there some way to configure the App to have login credentials so it passes the single sign on page? When I put the url's I want, it returns 200 but I am assuming it is pinging the sign on page and not the actual URL because when you go to that url in a browser, it redirects to the sign on page. Thanks.
Website Monitoring does not currently support HTML forms authentication (the type of authentication where you fill out an HTML form to get the website to let you in). However, you may be able to use the Website Inputs app instead since it does support form authentication. You could so this by:
Once you get the input created, you could use a search like this:
source="web_input://my_input_with_forms_auth" | table _time content* response* request*
Thanks, Does this app do the same time of monitoring by getting the response code and the response time? And when I go to the link it redirects me to an entirely different webpage to log in then I can access a bunch of different webpages. Will it work for that?
I neglected a field in my list. The request_time contains the response time.
As for the link redirection: you will need to define the URL of the login page in the wizard in the authentication step of the wizard. Put the URL of the page you want to monitor into the fist page of the wizard.
So theres two places for input? one for the URL we need authentication for then we put in the credentials then we put the other URL that we want monitored that is past that single sign on page?
