HTTP Form Login Monitor

This component monitor tests the ability of a web server to serve web pages secured behind a forms-based login page. The test is performed by using the credential as the user name and password for the login form, retrieving the page behind the login form, and then searching the retrieved page for keywords that indicate either a successful or a failed login attempt.

The HTTP Form Login Monitor does not work on any login screens that are pop up.
