More advanced methods of authentication for Website Checks

Recommended Posts

We would like to ability to easily authenticate into SaaS products where you have to enter a username and password and click the "Login" button or hit Enter.  These days, it seems ADFS and SAML are becoming more popular and the vendors are just redirecting a login page straight to our own SSO site.  So the website checks never trigger alerts because you can get to the SSO login page, but after that the application is broken which is really what we want to monitor.  Is that something in the pipeline for website checks in LogicMonitor?  If not, it would be great to see that.  Maybe some way to identify the username, password fields on the page with the credentials stored in properties and the ability to define whether to click a Login button or submit an "Enter" key press.

Hey @Matt Gauthier,

Have you seen our documentation on scripted website checks (?) - in case not, here are some links to the relevant materials:

Having said that, writing these for some HTTP applications can be a challenging process - for a variety of reasons.

@Sam Mallen is our Product Manager for website checks and has been recently working on some improvements, I'll ping him and see if he has any wisdom as to the roadmap.

Best,

Kerry

Thanks for that tip, I hadn't come across those so will review.  Still would love to see an easier, quicker way to implement an authenticated website check.
