Configuration

The SOAP Monitor is derived from the URL Monitor and requires similar configuration information such as protocol, port, path, and host(s) to monitor. In addition, authorization credentials and proxy information can be specified.

Furthermore, SOAP envelope data to be sent with a POST request has to be specified. As an example, we provide a sample system profile and a dashboard configured to monitor WebSphere Message Broker.
