Process JSON response from HTTP POST request

Hi.

Is it possible to process a JSON or XML response from an HTTP POST request?

Of the HTTP sensors:

  • "HTTP XML/REST Value" doesn't support POST.
  • "HTTP Advanced" supports POST but doesn't support JSON/XML evaluation

I'd like to be able to evaluate the response from an Elasticsearch Query over HTTP POST.

elasticsearch http json post xml

Hi,
This would only be possible using a script sensor in PRTG. You might use the Python Script Sensor here or the EXE Script Sensor. You then can write a script which performs request and checks the output.
Best regards
