How can I do bulk device moves?



If I've created an auto-discovery group with a large number of devices, how can I move a portion (or all) of those devices to another, existing group?

For example, I'd like to select a number of devices (checkboxes), then use the "Move" submenu functionality.

That is not possible at the moment.

If you have to move multiple devices we suggest using the Windows GUI interface. It is easier and faster to move devices with it (drag and drop).

The Windows Client also doesn't work for Drag&Drop Multiple objects to, such a simple feature that PRTG could not implement ? We are suppose to drag and drop 250 objects one by one ? is this software from 1990's ? Any new if this will be implemented at any point ?

Hello there,

I think you worked it out with our desktop client. In this KB post. Are you fine with this, now?

Kind regards,
