I am getting a 404 when I try to use the EXECUTE HTTP ACTION. I want my monitor to start a Jenkins build via the web POST request

http://user:[email protected]/job/mybuild/build

This works fine when I do this via curl mechanism, but I cannot get this to work via PRTG EXECUTE HTTP ACTION. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this or troubleshoot this? I do not see anything in the logs when I do Test, I have to force a sensor to go down to see error in logs. The notification error is: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found which usually means the page or credentials have been mucked up. Any way to get the actual URL sent or has anyone used Jenkins remote API access with PRTG in the past?
