Check Set-Cookie after POST Request

Hi,

We have a webap where we would like to use PRTG to monitor if login is still possible.

Is it possible to send a POST request and then check for the presence of "Set-Cookie: LtpaToken2" in the returning headers? Like with the curl command below.

$ curl -d "user=login&password=example" -D- https://<url to webseite with POST data handler> HTTP/1.1 302 Found Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2016 08:23:13 GMT X-Powered-By: Servlet/3.0 Location: https://<url to webseite with POST data handler> Content-Length: 0 Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=<sessionid>:-1; Path=/; HttpOnly Set-Cookie: LtpaToken2=<TokenID>; Path=/; HttpOnly Expires: Thu, 01 Dec 1994 16:00:00 GMT Cache-Control: no-cache="set-cookie, set-cookie2" Content-Language: de-DE

We can send a POST request with the HTTP Advanced Sensor but we don't seem to be able to parse the returning headers or check for the presence of the Set-Cookie: LtpaToken2. Is there another sensor for this kind of task?

Thanks for any help.

Unable to use GET at all? If not, check this:

GET is not possible.

As I said we need to send the login data using POST and check in the returning headers/cookies for the presence of Set-Cookie: LtpaToken2. The HTTP Advanced Sensor, as far as I can tell, does not include the headers in the Required Keyword section

No way around a custom script sensor, unfortunately :/ Maybe you can use this as a start and modify it according to your needs?
