How can I change the script an exe monitor calls



I need to change the script thats called by a sensor. Its the same script but I need to change that filename. At the moment I just created a hardlink so the same file is now available under two names. You dont seem to be able to edit that in the interface once the sensor is created. I have no idea why that would be. Is there another way to change it?

I'm afraid once the sensor is created there is no way of changing the used script. Sorry.
You will have to create the sensor anew when you want to use the new script. If you are in need to keep the old data you might just pause the old sensor (which then will not count against the sensor limit).
Best regards
