Hi Mikael,

All you need is a commandline tool, to be used as a Custom Notification, like this one.

Copy the .exe to the \Notifications\EXE folder of your PRTG installation and setup a new notification that calls the .exe with the parameters needed.

You can also use placeholders in the parameter section of the notification.
