HTTP Web Server Login using JavaScript




we want to monitor the web server login page. We don't use basic authentication, instead we use JavaScript to make login.

We give, in the http header, the username and the password and the javascript makes the authentication.

We can't found any HTTP Sensor to test the authentication using that method.

I'm afraid the HTTP Sensors in PRTG do not support authentication via JavaScript.
Best regards
