As a PRTG User, I want to test web calls that require token authentication

Details of User Story

We are writing applications that have a need for high user availability. As such, we want to monitor when urls stop responding as expected.

Acceptance criteria

  • Provide fields for username, password, security url and use that info to retrieve a token from the secure url
  • Username and password should be able to be passed as headers
  • Make a 2nd web request, mapping the token from the results of the first request as a header to the 2nd request
  • Provide results of second web request
