The answer to this question is probably the difference between my company expanding use of Pingdom vs terminating use of Pingdom.
I have many links in a hierarchical structure. Using Inspect + Copy Selector shows that 2 of these are differentiated as follows:
#mainContent > div > div.find-wrap.clearfix > div.find-column.first > div > ul > li:nth-child(1) > a
#mainContent > div > div.find-wrap.clearfix > div.find-column.first > div > ul > li:nth-child(2) > a
I would like the webcheck to go to a specific one of these and retrieve data.
However putting this command into a webcheck does not work:
Click #mainContent > div > div.find-wrap.clearfix > div.find-column.first > div > ul > li:nth-child(2) > a
Can a Pingdom check get me where I want to go? If not, what is the ETA on addressing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes, for a transaction check.
step 1-- go to site
step 2-- login in
step 3-- go to certain area of site through however many steps
--- this is the portion where getting some places is challenging.
---is it possible to use the href rather than the selector for clicking? --- I know I want to go here next (href="https://thwack.solarwinds.com/BalSheet/IETrends.aspx?entity=3782) , it is just the hierarchy that is causing confusion for Pingdom.
step 4-- validate something
step 5-- logout
This should work. Would you mind if I reach out to you directly on Monday? We also having something in the works that will make our transaction checks much easier to build.
