Is it possible to limit search results to a specific probe or group?



Is there a way to limit search results to a certain probe or group? We have different probes for different customers. Sometimes we need to make bulk changes to a customer's sensor settings and would like to be able to limit a search to only that customer's probe or group. For instance, we need to modify a ping sensor. When I search for "ping" I get all 250 ping sensors in our PRTG setup but I really only need the 50 or so sensors that belong to that probe in question.

Is there a way to perform this search or am I stuck having to manually pick the needed sensors out of the 250 item list?

Sorry, Jim, not possible in the moment.

Any plans for making the search function more powerful with syntax to be able to limit searches, etc?

at the moment there are no such plans, sorry. But I will mention it in the next developer meeting.
