How to make a PUT call?



We have alot of HTTP sensors and they can make GET, POST and HEAD call. We now have a third-party service we would like to monitor which requires a PUT call.

How can we make a PUT call? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Am I missing something?

Can they try a POST? From what I've read, it's the same thing.

To my knowledge PRTG will not support a PUT call, but you can create a custom sensor that does the PUT call.

They look very much the same, but are two different things. One is used for creating new objects and the other one for updating a existing object.

But more importantly if the webservice is build on a PUT call, it won't respond to a POST call. I'll give an error. So, that's not an option.

Sorry, but no, we do not support a PUT natively. You'd have to write a custom script that does the PUT, and gets the returned value.

Check out the API by going to Setup -> PRTG API -> Custom Sensors in your installation.
