HTTP Content Sensor with Basic HTTP Authentication?




I have to monitor a web status page wit the following example data: [20][28][247][37][47][118][30][5222]

This works perfectly with the HTTP Content Sensor. But I want to secure this status page with Basic HTTP Authentication. I can see fields to put in Username / Password only on the HTTP Advanced Sensor. In the HTTP Content Sensor I couldn't see this fields.

Thank you in advance.

this is correct. I'm afraid the HTTP Content sensor does not support authentication. Sorry.
Best regards
