PTF.XMLRestQB

XMLRestQB helps you building queries for the HTTP XML/Rest Value sensor.

Using the XML/Rest sensor it can be time consuming finding all the right settings for your specific need.

This tool will help you to find your optimal settings in 4 easy steps.

Build your query in 4 steps

  1. Enter the source url and its settings
  2. Press the “Get XML” button
  3. Review the XML output
  4. Experiment with the “extract value” settings

Once you have found your optimal settings, enter them the same way on the settings page of the XML/Rest sensor.

PTF.XMLRestQB can be downloaded here.

Does this tool support HTTPS? As I can get it to work via HTTP but any time I use HTTPS it comes up with the error "The underlying connect was close: An unexpected error occurred on a send".

Yes, it does. This error message usually indicates incorrect credentials.
