Use available item preprocessing steps to extract values of variables from web page contents in web scenarios

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Inspired by ZBX-13786.

      Currently the only way to extract something from web page contents in web scenario is a regex variable like:

      Name   Value
      {macro} regex:<regular expression>

      4.0 will bring a new HTTP Agent item type (ZBXNEXT-4358) and I'm sure users will enjoy item preprocessing (ZBXNEXT-1443) available there. This puts web scenarios on a back foot.

      Since HTTP Agent will not support multiple steps and does not provide performance metrics, I think it would be a good idea to introduce preprocessing into web scenario variables. XPath, JSON Path and regular expressions with "output" parameters will be very useful there.
