Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Testing HTTP Response for particular string

I understand the Simon concept of the results of a particular test changing, but I would like to be very explicit and for my HTTP test to pass if a particular string is found in the body of the response and fail if it is not found.

Is there something I'm missing with how I'm understanding setting up a Test?

Re: Testing HTTP Response for particular string

If you want to look for the presence of specific text, simply enter that as the Start text in the Smart Change Detection area, and leave the End text blank. If the Start text isn't found, it'll be a failure.
