Keepalive method GET

I have configured a service on CSS11506 with keepalive type http and method GET and uri "/". I don't want CSS to compute hash value and compare it and only use 200 ok status for service to stay alive. The content on the web server will be changing and will not be feasible to suspend and reactivate service everytime when content changes. Besides scripted keepalives is there any workaround that CSS only uses 200 ok status for service to stay up.

Jaydhindsa was sopt-on.

Just change the "keepalive method" from the default value of "head" to "get". You shold be okay then. Ensure that you suspend and reactivate the service for the change to take effect

Re: Keepalive method GET

no need to suspend and activate the service for the change to take effect.

Also, the initial question was 'how to avoid the CSS hashing the response'.

With a GET the CSS always uses a hash. There is no way to avoid this with a non-scripted keepalive.

Therefore, they can't use GET and will have to go for a script or use a HEAD request which is what I would prefer.
