HTTP Advanced sensor and CSRF token




Is there any way to make an HTTP Advanced sensor work with a CSRF token, where you first have to load e.g. a login page to get your token and then incorporate that in your subsequent POST request? I'm currently getting around this requirement using a Python script sensor for the server in question instead, but it would prefer to do it the "native" way if possible.

authentication csrf http login webserver

Hi there,

Unfortunately, this is not naively possible. The workaround via script is a good solution here. ​

Kind regards,
