Parse a value of XML child mode using XML Sensor




I am going to add a website monitor using the XML path provide by the website provider. The value I want to monitor is the network="1" in the XML below:

so, if network=1 then the website is UP, vice versa.

However, I always get a value "0" in my sensor. Should I config the part "XML Node (and optional property)" using the format as: Response:Heartbeat:network ?

Thanks for helping

Hello Simon,

Thank you for your message.

Can you please provide us the complete response you get from the website provider (without any confidential information), so we can test it on our side.

Kind regards.
