Question:

 We want to use a third-party monitoring software (e.g. HP SiteScope) to login to APM WebView and track those logins via the APM WebView Agent.  What do we need to setup for doing this?

Environment:
All current supported versions of APM with WebView enabled.
Answer:

APM WebView requires form-based authentication  So, if your third-party monitoring software uses HTTP-based authentication, WebView will not recognize this and no authentication will take place even if sending your username and password.

Additional Information:

An example of a third-party monitoring software that can login to APM WebView is CA App Synthetic Monitor, which uses HTTP based and form based authentication.
