Difference between website monitoring and REST API monitoring

Difference between website monitoring and REST API monitoring

Website monitoring allows you to monitor your websites and web applications to ensure that they are up and running. Website monitor verifies the availability of specified, addressable, standard HTTP and HTTPS URLs from over 100+ global locations and also from behind your firewall. Content check for text content is also supported.  You also have GET, HEAD and POST options enabled in this monitor.

REST API monitor regularly checks the response of your REST APIs and alerts you if the response does not contain the specified attribute value at the given XPath/Attribute name. In addition, to GET and HEAD methods, you also have PUT, PATCH, and DELETE options enabled in this monitor.
