Differentiate HTTP / HTTPS check types

When modifying a test and changing from HTTP -> HTTPS, the check in the list should be refreshed.

Sure, the check type is the same, but the value is different and therefore the entry in the list shows an incorrect value.

Hello Richard!

This has already been implemented in the checks list under Monitoring > Uptime:

Hi,

 

I think therefore the problem is only that the check isn't refreshed when the value is changed.

Thanks,

Richard

Yes it would seem that way, however refreshing the page manually should do the trick!

Hi Amada,

Yes, however I have > 70 checks.

You could just refresh the page, however if you have a filter to reduce the number visible, you have to re-enter the filter each time.

It starts to become quite irritating, if you're changing multiple checks.

In addition, since the current row isn't highlighted, if you have lots of similarly named checks, it gets confusing and difficult to find the one you just changed.

I've reported quite a few issues recently - I appreciate there are ways around some of them, but it's the first time I've used Pingdom in a while, and it has some problems which, if you're using it for lots of checks, start to make it rather annoying - having to do the same thing over and over again (such as refresh the page / re-enter the filter / scroll to the correct place in the list which is difficult to find).

 

Thanks,

Richard
