Clone or discover a custom check to new and current devices



I have a custom SNMP check that i would like to have added to my new and current devices that i have in PRTG 9.2.

Is it possible to add/enable this check to the auto discovery/or to a custom template?

Or is there a way to script this with the API to add this check to all my devices all in once, and if so do you have examples to do this?

I would probably go for cloning this sensor with the API to all devices which shall have it. This is documented under "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Object Manipulation". Best of course via a script which has all the IDs of the devices.

best regards.

Hi Torsten,

Is there a script available that gets al the devices and their name?

As such i can create a list of my devices. Obviously i understand that this can also be done via API.

But if Paessler has such a script available i dont have to reinvent the wheel a second time ;)

It should be possible to use the API as well to produce such a list of your devices.
