Probe (βeta) Usage

Step 1: Sign In

Open the web browser and navigate to the Request Insight Probe service's login page. Enter your credentials and sign in.

Step 2: Access the Probe Dashboard

After signing in, you'll be redirected to the dashboard. Look for an option or section related to managing probes.

Step 3: Setup a New Probe Endpoint

Find a button or option to create a new endpoint. Enter a name for the probe (e.g., "ExampleProbe"). In the URL field, input the address of remote service: https://api.domain.tld. Click on a button like "Create".

Step 4: Configure Direct Request

Assuming you want to inspect a POST request to https://api.domain.tld/v1/items. Use the generated probe endpoint (e.g., where "xxxx" is a code generated during endpoint setup.

Step 5: Show Request and Response in Web UI

Initiate a POST request directly to the remote service: POST https://api.domain.tld/v1/items. Simultaneously, open the inspection view on the web UI. There may be a dedicated section for viewing live or recent probes.

Step 6: Monitor Request and Response

As the request is sent, the web UI should dynamically display the captured request and response. Explore the details, including HTTP method, headers, payload, and response information.

Step 7: Analyze and Troubleshoot

Use the information presented in the web UI to analyze the behavior of the request and troubleshoot any issues. Check for specific details such as response codes, headers, and payload content. This step-by-step example illustrates how to set up a new probe, configure it with a remote service address, and inspect a specific request through the web UI. The generated probe endpoint acts as a proxy for the original request, allowing you to capture and analyze the interactions in real-time.
