Hi, I need to monitor a service with a name that contain apostrophe. The wmi service sensor doesnt work, because the WMI query fail because the apostrophe need to be "escaped" as described here:

A manual "escaped" query works correctly.

How I can monitor this service?

Thanks FCRPDR

Thanks for your input, we'll implement this in an upcoming update.

In the meantime you could try to monitor this service using a custom WMI sensor.

Best regards,
