thank you very much for your KB-Post. Postdata is a form of a HTTP Request to send data (more than just the HTTP Request against the URL) to a webserver. It depends what the target does accept. Please check this with the admin of the webserver, which is targeted then by the HTTP Notification of PRTG.

best regards.

I'm sorry, Postdata is very very flexible, it could be almost 'anything', so an example will not help as much, as it most likely will not fit your purpose/target webserver.
