Question:
Is it possible for the url_response probe to do an automated login to a web site so it can monitor the page after the login is done for a specific string? 
Answer:
Yes, the url_response probe can do an automated login. 

For example using the CA Support web site. 

The home page is: 
https://support.ca.com/us.html

The login page is: 
https://profile.ca.com/us/register/login.aspx?returnURL=https://support.ca.com/us.html

Once logged in the page is:
https://support.ca.com/us.html

In the probe configure 
URL is set for: https://support.ca.com/us.html

User Authentication
enter the Support site user name and password

For testing several different values were used for 'Look for Substring in Page Content'. 
Test were 'CASE MANAGEMENT', 'MY CASES', and 'MY ACCOUNT'. 

Note: If using the IM console configure GUI it is necessary to check the box for 'Use regex' since the IM GUI does not support spaces for the string.
