Currently in the http or https monitor, there is no way to specific the http method. By default, it is using get. Is there a way to force the monitor to do http post?
At this time ipMonitor can do GET and HEAD requests. The ability to do POST requests is something that has been requested in the past and has been added to our Feature Request list for possible implementation within a future version. Until such a feature is implemented, you would need to write a script which would perform the POST against your web site and then verify what is needed. Once the script is written, trigger it using the External Process Monitor.
