Get SNMP values to return OK status



I have an SNMP OID ( that returns an integer (1-6).

The values are: 1: Other 2: Unknown 3: OK 4: Non-critical 5: Critical 6: Non-recoverable

I would prefer to not set limits on the sensor, but have it return the OK, Warning, & Error status in the sensor. How can I do this?

Dear Benjamin,

in the moment, you can only use limits for cases like this one. But we are working on a solution for this. Please bear with us.

best regards.
