How to set up a notification for all sensors of one type in bulk?

I would like to enable a notification that will alert me via email if any devices in my environment has a down PING sensor. I do not want to use the State trigger at a top level because I don't want to be notified about high CPU or pagefile usage for example. Is there a way to add a notification to all PING sensors in bulk rather than individually?

Thanks

Yes, if you create a library containing all of your ping sensors you can then set up a notification for that library which will then apply to all Ping sensors in that library. In the library you will need to create a node.

Hi,
we are working on a feature which allows you setting notifications based on Libraries in PRTG. This should do exactly what you want.
The feature is already present in the Preview and Canary Release Channel and we hope (sorry, no guarantee) to bring this into the Stable Release Channel sometime this month.
Best regards

Hi, is this feature available now?

It's neccesary in a World-Class Software Like PRTG.

Thank you.

Hi, I have just found this thread.

Is it possible when creating a library to drag and drop more than only one single sensor at a time? It does not seem to be possible to mark all the sensors you want to drag and drop.

Hi, This is not possible at the moment but I'll put this on our feature request list.

Meanwhile you can assign tags to each sensor of interest and filter the library for the tag. You can use multi-edit to edit multiple sensors.

Hi, I have a 1000 of devices with a number of sensors on each of them. I don't want to be notified about problems with one of them. Is there a way to multiedit and switch notifications for just one sensor type in the group? I don't use libraries currently in my setup so let's assume this is not a solution for me at the time. brg, TG.

I'm afraid not, Libraries are the way to go in situations like this.
