Determine downtime vs acknowledged time



I'm trying to determine how long a sensor is down vs downacknowledged so I can report on how quickly(or slowly) sensors are being acted upon by our ops team.

Is there a way to determine how long a sensor is acknowledged?

I can get downtime with the 'downtimetime' parameter in the API. I'm looking for something similar for the downacknowledged status.


acknowledge api downtime

it is not yet possible to measure how long a sensor was down acknowledged at the moment, sorry.

But I will add the request to our wish list!
