REST Custom Sensor



Hi, I try to configure a REST Custom Sensor but I have an error when I try to check the sensor : Cannot load endpoint https://myurltotheapi: expected status 200 OK but got 405 Method Not Allowed.

I configure the sensor with these parameters :

  • POST
  • a JSON data to send
  • HTTPS protocol
  • acceptall certificats
  • No authentification
  • use a personolize header (Content-Type:application/json)
  • My REST URL request

I don't understand why my sensor doesn't work. Can somebody help me or give me advice to configure the rest custom sensor.

I would like to use PRTG to survey all my REST api and re-use the rest custom sensor. Thanks J

Hello there.

It sounds as if the endpoint doesn't like the POST operation. Are you able to perform the query/request using cURL or powershell? Or do you also get a HTTP 405 this way?
