Show custom message in Http Data Push Sensor



I followed the instruction, but cant make text show properly. It shows Ok no matter value was set to negative or positive, and shows "There was no value provided ( text=this is a message ) (code: PE210)" without a giving value and sensor was marked as ERROR.

What should I do to make value/text working together? I need a return value to identify it is information, warning or error, and together with a human readable message. Please advise...

We've tested this internally and it all works, as expected.

Can you please send the url you are calling and a screenshot of your sensor settings and sensor overview to our support team for further analysis?

Please refer to this kb-article in your email.

You are absolutely right. We're very sorry, but we accidentally used PRTG 14.2.10 for testing. This version is not published as stable yet, but it will hopefully only take a few weeks.

We hope this will help you and thank you very much for your feedback.
