Our idea to start shell script was something like for example JMeter has in their “post processor” actions (there is a possibility to start shell or python script or any other after request to do something with response data).
Site24x7 has a possibility to extract data from response but there is still limitation that we cannot transform that data and use them changed in next steps. Any programing language implemented after a request would give users unlimited possibilities to prepare probes.
The main goal of this ticket can be related to the ticket “[## 626194 ##] Website and Web App Monitoring : JSON PATH extractor” where was no possibility to extract ID as a string from JSON.
Mentioned ticket could be easily solved by users when they would have possibility to run own lets say python program (or any other programming language from shell) and modify the data.
Please consider such option or please let us know if this is possible but we are not aware of it.
