"This url is forbidden" error message when creating REST API Monitor

Hi,

I'm in the process of setting up a REST API monitor as described on the page www.site24x7.com/help/admin/adding-a-monitor/rest-api-monitor.html. Our API uses OAuth so I also configured an OAuth provider and selected the provider in the dropdown list next to 'Provider Name'. When checking the OAuth provider I do see an access taken and a refresh token.

However, when I save the monitor itself it keep on getting the error "This url is forbidden".

I found a similar post in the Community on this (www.site24x7.com/community/monitoring-rest-api-with-bearer-token) but this did not provide a solution to me.

Has anyone experienced this before? What could be the solution for this?

 

Regards,

Re: "This url is forbidden" error message when creating REST API Monitor

Hi,

I found the solution for the problem after reading the following Community www.site24x7.com/community/how-to-monitor-response-code-forbidden. The reason was that only HTTP Status Code 200 was configured to accepted. I updated the list to 200,403 and now the monitoring works.

HTTP Status Code 403 is returned by default when browsing to the endpoint without authentication.
