Monitoring SQL Server Reporting Services



I'm trying to use the HTTP Advanced sensor to monitor the landing page of a SQL Server Reporting Services. I have a user account to access SQL Server Reporting Services. If I access with a browser SQL Server Reporting Services and I login with that account, it works, I land on the Homepage of SQL Server Reporting Services. When I configure the HTTP Advanced sensor, I get an "Operation aborted" error. I tried setting all the possible authentication methods, and also changing between GET and POST.
The URL I would like to monitor is the standard SQL Server Reporting Services landing page, that is, https://server.domain.com/Reports/browse/

Any suggestion what could be the problem?

Thanks for contacting us.

What if you change the monitoring engine option from "Default" to "Compatibility engine"? (HTTP Engine Section)
