Is there a way to do a discovery of interfaces on devices based on specific interface labels?

We want to be able to do a discovery of network devices that have an interface with a specific label. If a device has an interface with the label "billable", we want to be able to identify them and group those devices.

Hello,

I'm afraid in the moment this is not possible. The Auto-Discovery will always add sensors for all interfaces on a switch that are connected and that don't exist already as a sensor with the same name.

Best Regards.

Hello support,

is it still not possible under version 12? Couldn't we use API to change the way the auto discovery runs?

Regards.

I'm afraid this has not changed, and to be honest, there are no definite plans to change it in the near future.
