Can I customize and auto-discovery to a specific type of device?



I tried to do an auto-discovery on an IP address range, based on the APC (UPS) device template, and unique SNMP string and it discovered PCs, printers and other devices. Is it possible to search for just APC (UPS).

devices discovery prtg8

In the Auto-Discovery settings, in Step 2, select the Automatic sensor creation using specific device template(s) option. Then from the list, select the UPS (APC) template. The auto-discovery will then detect the respective devices only.
