Service account monitoring



I have a task to top up some accounts of third-party services like hosting, IP telephony and so on. Some of this top ups are regularly, but some are not, and I have to monitor the amount of funds on the account manually. As I can see, this can be done automatically with PRTG. I`d like to create a sensor displaying my balance, and set up a notification when my balance lowers less than some value. No problem with notification, but no idea how to get the value from a password protected https page. Please, help!

Hi there,

Should the services offer any API, then you might be able to monitor them via the "XML/Rest Sensor":

Best regards.
