We are looking at monitoring a website using Telegraf’s input.http plugin. The section for authentication looks as follows:
Optional HTTP Basic Auth Credentials
username = “”
password = “”
The trouble that I have is that my website uses NTLM authentication, so the username is of the format DOMAIN\username. I have verified that the account information is valid and that it can connect to the site using Postman or Curl from the command line. However, when I start Telegraf, it keeps getting a 401 (unauthorized) response. Unfortunately, IIS logs do not show me what username it thinks it sees.
Has anyone had success monitoring a website login using domain account information with Telegraf? Would you mind sharing your experience? Thank you!
