There is double negation here which might be confusing, but hopefully clearer
if you have to read the statement as
if failed -> request "/some/uri/file.xml"
if failed -> content = ‘type=“alarm”’
The last part means, if the response failed to produce content with
‘type=“alarm”’ then fail. Which is the opposite of what you want. To fix this
negate the test,
with content != 'type="alarm"'
