I'm trying to monitor a JSON-output like this:

{ "version": "LinOTP 1.1.1.1", "jsonrpc": "2.0", "result": { "status": true, "value": { "Realms": { "myrealm": { "mygroup": 72 } } } }, "id": 1 } But I'm having some trouble finding the right value for "XML Node (and optional property)". version is working fine -> PRTG value is "LinOTP_1.1.1.1".

But how do I get PRTG to monitor the value 72 in this example? Shouldn't result/status/value/Realms/myrealm/mygroup be the right search filter here ("Node result/status/value/Realms/myrealm/mygroup not found in xml result.")?

json xml xpath

Hi,
please try removing status for your query string:

result/value/Realms/myrealm/mygroup

Then it should work. :)
Best regards

Upps, you're right. But unfortunately it's still not working: Node result/value/Realms/myrealm/mygroup not found in xml result.

Strange, when using your json this works for me well. Is the provided json the whole content returned by the webserver? (You also can test your query here http://www.jsonquerytool.com/ just switch to XPath for JSON in the dropdown on the upper right)
