Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1310-A or below

Addressed the issue that Web Site Reliability Rules in Argent Sentry Ultra fail to detect broken links, when using DHTML method

Technical Background

The ‘Web Site Reliability Rules‘ in Argent Sentry Ultra check for any broken links, using the dynamic HTML or Internet explorer scanning methods

In the versions below Argent AT 3.1A-1401-A, the Rules fail to detect the broken links with DHTML method for websites; however, it works fine with internet explorer method

For example, when executing the Web Site Reliability Rule

ASU_WS_RELIABILITY_CHECK_ALL using the DHTML scanning method, against a website with a broken link, the Rule does not get broken

A sample log file is shown below

Even though the log file says a ‘Page or file not found‘ error, the Rule is not be broken

This was a coding issue and it has been addressed


Upgrade to Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1401-A or above
