HTTP Match (Validate Pattern)

HTTP Match (Validate Pattern)


The content monitoring enables you to define any target urls url. In addition, you need to define a term that we need to find when we get the target page. The check is only successful for us if we find the term pattern - otherwise we start the alarm. In addition to the Url, you specify a term (regular expression) that we need to find when querying the Url. If the term is not found or Url is not available, we start the alert.

What is an “HTTP Match (Validate Pattern) Check”?

An "HTTP Match (Validate Pattern) Check" refers to checking a web page or web application for the presence or absence of certain patterns or strings in the server's HTTP response body. This type of verification is often used to ensure that a web page contains expected content or meets certain criteria.

Here are some key concepts related to an HTTP Match (Validate Pattern) check:

  1. Pattern or Strings: The check is configured with a predefined pattern or string expected in the HTTP response body. For example, this could be a specific message, a keyword or an HTML tag.

  2. HTTP Response Body Monitoring: The HTTP Match Check analyzes the text that the server sends in response to a request. This can include all or parts of the HTML content of a web page.

  3. Validation and Notification: If the predefined pattern or string is found in the HTTP response body (or not found, depending on the configuration), the check is considered successful. Otherwise, an error will be reported and notifications may be triggered.

  4. Application example: An HTTP Match Check could, for example, ensure that a website contains the success message "Thank you for your request" after a form has been submitted. Alternatively, it could ensure that an error page has the expected error pattern.

This type of verification is useful for ensuring that a web page or web application delivers the expected content. It is often used as part of a broader monitoring system or solution to ensure that websites are functioning properly and providing users with the information or services they expect.

It is important to note that such checks should be carefully configured to ensure that they work in a reliable manner. Changes to website content or structure could cause predefined patterns to no longer match and result in false positives. Therefore, HTTP match checks should be checked regularly and updated if necessary.
