Convert API Endpoint Monitors to SoapUI

Last modified on August 24, 2020

To convert an API endpoint monitor to a SoapUI monitor, send a PATCH request to /monitors/website-api/{id}/convert-api or /monitors/website-ssl-api/{id}/convert-api, where {id} is the monitor ID.

This action cannot be reverted.

Request URL

POST https://api.alertsite.com/api/v3/monitors/website-api/{id}/convert-api

-- or --

POST https://api.alertsite.com/api/v3/monitors/website-ssl-api/{id}/convert-api

Authentication

The request must include the Authorization header containing a user’s access token:

Authorization: Bearer ACCESS_TOKEN

See Authentication for more information.

Response body

On success, the operation returns the ID of the converted monitor.

{
  "id": "123456"
}

Error responses have a non-200 status code and contain the errors list, such as:

{
  "errors": [
    {
      "code": 400,
      "message": "invalid_request - User authentication failed."
    }
  ]
}

Try it out

You can test the operations in AlertSite’s interactive API console:

Code examples

Convert the monitor with ID 123456:

cURL

curl -X PATCH https://api.alertsite.com/api/v3/monitors/website-api/123456/convert-api -H "Authorization: Bearer ACCESS_TOKEN"

Python

import requests # Requests library http://docs.python-requests.org
import json

baseUrl = 'https://api.alertsite.com/api/v3'
username = 'demo@example.com'  # Replace with your AlertSite login email
password = 'pa55w0rd'          # Replace with your AlertSite password

monitor_id = 123456

# Login
payload = {'username': username, 'password': password}
r = requests.post(baseUrl + '/access-tokens', data=json.dumps(payload), headers={'Content-Type': 'application/json'})
token = r.json()['access_token']

# Convert the monitor
r = requests.patch(baseUrl + '/monitors/website-api/{}/convert-api'.format(monitor_id), headers={'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + token})
if r.ok:
  print('Monitor {} has been converted.'.format(monitor_id))
else:
  print('Could not convert monitor {}. The following error(s) occurred:'.format(monitor_id), *r.json()['errors'], sep='\n')
