output url status html

output url status html

output url status html


The script below is successfully checking a list of wsdls & was outputting to the console the correct status. However I've tried converting the output to HTML, but the output from the $body variable is blank (I'm guessing this is because it's not an object), but I don't know how to make it one.

Ideally I'd like the script to output the wsdl url, ($_) and the status (either HTTP_Status or text 'Site Is OK'). If I can get that at least into the TEMP.html output file then I think I can use a replace to set the appropriate colour of the table cell.

CODE --> powershell

$URLList = Get-Content -path C:\wsdls.txt
# First create the request.
# $HTTP_Request = [System.Net.WebRequest]::Create('http://somefakeurlthatImadeup.com')
# $HTTP_Request = [System.Net.WebRequest]::Create('http://google.com')

$body = $URLList | foreach {$HTTP_Request = [System.Net.WebRequest]::Create($_)
$notfound = 0
# We then get a response from the site.
$HTTP_Response = $HTTP_Request.GetResponse()
catch {
    $ErrorMessage = $_.Exception.Message
    $FailedItem = $_.Exception.ItemName
    #Write-Host $ErrorMessage +$FailedItem
    If ($ErrorMessage = 'Exception calling "GetResponse" with "0" argument(s):'){
#    Write-Host "URL Not Found"
    $notfound = 1
 #   throw $ErrorMessage +$FailedItem
# We then get the HTTP code as an integer.
If ($notfound -eq 0) {
$HTTP_Status = [int]$HTTP_Response.StatusCode

If ($HTTP_Status -eq 200) { 
    Write-Host "Site is OK!"
Else {
    Write-Host "Not OK"

# Finally, we clean up the http request by closing it.

Write-Host ($body | Format-Table | Out-String)

#$colorTagTable = @{OK = ' bgcolor="#00ff00">Site OK<';
#                   NotOK = ' bgcolor="#ff0000">Not OK<'}

#get possible values look them in text surrounded by > < and replace them
#$colorTagTable.Keys | foreach { $body = $body -replace ">$_<",($colorTagTable.$_) }

ConvertTo-HTML -body "<H2>WSDL Status</H2> $body" | Out-File "C:\TEMP.htm" 

RE: output url status html

Never mind. I found an alternate script that I managed to merge with this one to do what I needed to do. I had to use the System.Net.WebRequest method as the invoke-webrequest was producing a HTTP status of 0 despite the sites being accessible (it worked fine on my local machine, but had issues on my remote servers).
