Is it possible to use DIGEST authentication on health monitor

Currently my health monitor settings are:

Send string:  GET /URI HTTP/1.1\r\nHost:example.com\r\nConnection: Close\r\n\r\n

Get string: HTTP/1.1 200 OK

I also have user and password.

 

Problem is that i get response 401 unauthorized. I also checked that username and password are correct.

 

Server only supports Digest authentication sample response:

< HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized

< WWW-Authenticate: Digest

I don't believe that is built in. You may need to create an external monitor and use a script that runs a curl command like this:

curl --digest --user daniel:secret http://example.com/
