Statsignal introduces a range of new features, including the ability to follow or not follow HTTP(s) redirects, specify custom HTTP methods, set custom request headers and request bodies, monitor for specific keywords in response headers and body, set specific timeouts, and receive alerts in a Discord channel.
With this latest update, Statsignal has introduced new features that allow users to customize their HTTP(S) monitoring requests further.
Statsignal's default behavior has been to follow HTTP(s) redirects, but we've now introduced a new feature that allows you to customize this behavior. With our latest update, you can choose whether or not to follow redirects.
Custom HTTP Method
Our HTTP monitors have been checking target websites using the HEAD method, or GET if HEAD is not available. However, we've now introduced a new feature that lets you specify any other standard HTTP method: POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, or OPTIONS.
Request Headers and Body
Our latest update introduces a powerful new feature: the ability to specify custom request headers and body on your monitors. Whether you need to send a POST form, JSON, XML, or any other kind of text body, our platform makes it easy to specify the exact content you need.
With this added capability, you can comply with specific target needs and ensure that your monitoring requests are being sent with the appropriate headers and body..
With this latest update, Statsignal has become more powerful with new features for monitoring the response of HTTP(s) monitors. These features include the ability to set the response status reported as "Up" or "Down," and check for the presence of specific keywords in response headers and response body.
Similar to the HTTP Monitor Request/Response options, the TCP Monitors now include a powerful new feature that allows you to send data and check for a keyword in the data response.
Our latest update introduces a new feature that can be used across all kinds of monitors, including HTTP, HTTPS, TCP, and ICMP: the ability to set a specific timeout. With this feature, you can specify the maximum amount of time that your monitor should wait for a response before reporting the target as down, giving you greater control over your monitoring strategy.
Statsignal has added a new alert recipient type to its alert system: Discord. This new addition complements the already existing Email, SMS, Call, Slack, and Webhook Alert recipient types.
With this feature, users can receive alerts in a Discord channel and keep their teams informed about any status that may reported by their monitors. Discord is a popular communication platform used by many businesses and teams, making it an excellent addition to the Statsignal Monitor alert system.
