API: Support updating HTTP check settings via the Monitoring API

We have a need to bulk update some HTTP check parameters. I thought this might be a good opportunity to dig into the Monitoring API and maybe write an Ansible module for managing HTTP checks. I ran into problems when I found that, while I could create and delete HTTP checks, the API provided no method of updating existing checks.

    This makes sense. fundamentally we need to provide a comprehensive way to update a checks settings via the API. A v1.0 of this could be to just allow updating check settings, but not say RBC steps (since bulk updating selenium steps could be challenging). Reaching out to reporters with some clarifying questions.

        I can definitely see the value here. fundamentally there needs to be a way to update check configuration via the API, not just header/cookies. Reaching out to Colin via email to understand if there are other use cases

        It's not currently possible to 'Add Browser Configuration' when creating a test via API, so the use case of programmatically created tests is rather limited.
