http transaction sensor "Response must include"



Can someone give me an example of what to enter here? I've tried words on the webpage, responses captured with the URL Recorder, etc. Everything I enter comes back with:

Error: String not found

The website is externally hosted.

Monitoring https://www.paessler.com with Result Must Include


seems to be working as expected.

Which website with what keyword are you trying to monitor?

You might want to enable "Store latest HTML result" and compare the result page in the page you want to check - are they the same? If not, PRTG might get stuck somewhere due to authentication problems, etc.

The logs can be found in the following directory: C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Logs (Sensors)\Result of Sensor (ID).txt'

The sensor ID is shown in the URL of the sensor overview page.
