if you need the selection only from a group, go to Sensiors -> By Group

then add this at the end of your URL


this should give you all the ping sensors in the selected group.

now you can use multi edit ti make changes.

Thanks. what are the other filter types i can use like that? also, can I edit the notification tab for a bulk of sensors ( using the filter you suggested)?

simply go to Sensors -> By Type and select a sensor type. you will then see the filter in the URL.

There is no multi edit for notifications yet, sorry.
