Does HTTP monitor supports NTLM/Windows authentication?

Hi,

Does HTTP monitor supports NTLM/Windows authentication? I can see basic authentication with credential vault in setting.

Thanks...

Hello,


I believe you can try to provide the NTLM credentials with the basic authentication option. This way is possible using a browser monitor.

See post:

Not sure if it would be different for HTTP monitors. @Philipp K. can you help with this?

Hey Matthew,

Thanks...It worked, but would be great if it work for HTTP monitor too. I'm thinking from DEM license perspective.

Thanks..

Hi,


Currently, there is no OOTB support for NTLM authentication for HTTP Monitors (only for Browser monitor). You can make a multi request and use pre-script and post-script to do the authentication but is going to require some development.

The support for NTLM in HTTP monitors is already on the road map, but there is no ETA on when this feature will be available.

Thanks for the info Alonso. What about Kerberos authentication for http monitors, is that on the roadmap?

Hi,

Followup to the question about Kerberos - I also have monitoring targets where NTLM is an option. It does seem easier to implement than Kerberos due to only having client <> server communication, but reading this material makes think it would still be quite a project to implement actually:

-> Any comments on this, would this really be a feasible thing to set up just using the pre/post request JavaScript that we can add to the http monitors..?
