Is there a way to monitor the contents of a web page/REST web service using regular expressions for example? Ideally I would like to extract an attribute value from an XML-document and check wether the value is above a certain threshold.

Hi Run66,

The Web Page Monitor does not have the ability to use Regular Expression to check for content in a web page. You could use the Execute Script Monitor and most likely be able to use Regular Expression to check for content in a file (XML-document).

Thanks
