Request parameters, headers and HTTP authentication
Learn how to configure monitor's requests in Better Uptime.

Requests sent by monitors can be customized. Monitors use the GET HTTP method by default. To change it go to Monitors -> Select a monitor -> Configure -> Advanced settings -> Request parameters. Here you can pick other methods like POST, PATCH and others.
You can also include specific parameters that will be included in the request body.

There are 2 main authentication methods that can be used. The first is using a header name and header value (for bearer token authentication). The second one is basic HTTP authentication with username and password.
