I need to monitor a file on a Windows machine and have it Alert if the contents of the file changes, eg. an executable that has been modified.
The File Sensor, with its Specific "Monitor File Content", works perfectly EXCEPT I want the sensor to generate an Alert when this is triggered, not just the "Change Notification".
As the sensor is not generating an Alert the email sent when I use an Email Notification Template is Green with a note saying file changed. Not the Red I am hoping for.
I thought maybe I could setup a Notification Template using a HTTP Action to feedback to the Sensor a simulate.htm API call using the %sensorid. However, this does not work. I am not sure why, as there does not seem to be any errors logged that I can see. So don't know if it is a permissions issue, or my API URL syntax is incorrect, or something else.
So my main question is, How do you override a Change Trigger to make it an Alert?
