Configuring content match for a Website monitor

Setting up a website monitor w.r.t content match and HTTP configuration

Regarding the website defacement (content match) configuration, you can set keyword checks to find the existence and non-existence of keywords in your HTML response. 

As far as the HTTP configurations are concerned, we support HEAD, GET, and POST methods. 
  • HEAD method: we will check only for the availability of the URL
  • GET method: This will fetch the entire HTML response and check for the presence of keywords configured
  • POST method: The parameters to access the URL would be posted
