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.

HTTP Service result code


I am evaluating Simon currently and one of the things I want to test is the availability of a couple of web services.

I added a check to the service but I would like to return another statuscode than 200.

However, Simon 'complains' that the result can not be cached and returns an error.

Do I miss something or do I really need to return a statuscode 200?

Re: HTTP Service result code

Sounds like you need to use a filter. You can look for the status code by using the headers as the input for the filter, and can use a Block filter to examine the value, and perhaps a Number filter (if using the standard edition of Simon) to compare that number to 200.
