Combine different sensor with script sensor



How can I combine any sensors with the internal script sensor.

My task is, if the sensors goes into error state it has to start a script or a service.

As example...

HTTP Sensor monitors a web page if Error 500 is returned. When 500 ist returned the http sensor fails and should restart the webservice on the server.

Is this possible?

kind regards Lars

http restart-service script

I'm afraid while it is of course possible to execute scripts as notifications (Manual-Notifications), it's not possible to do so only for certain errors on the sensor.

Best Regards.
