HTTP XML/REST Sensor Encoding



I am having an issue trying to authenticate to an API through the PRTG HTTP XML/REST Sensor, but can authenticate using other tools after ensuring the encoding in those other tools is set to Base64/ISO-8859-1. Is there any way to ensure PRTG is sending this request using the ISO-8859-1 encoding?

api iso-8559-1 xml-rest

The encoding is dynamically taken from the HTTP result, with a fallback to 8859-1.

There is no encoding in sending the HTTP request.

Best regards.
