Monitor only Automatic Services



Is there anyway to monitor only the services marked "Automatic" on all devices we currently have?

I see where i can monitor WMI Services, but it looks like i would have to specify the services in the sensor.

I also would like to apply this to all devices we currently are monitoring if that is possible.

Thank you for your help

Afraid that isn't possible. When adding a WMI Service sensor, the same will generate a list of available services. From this list you can select what services to monitor, but it isn't possible to define to monitor only those set to "Automatic." Sorry.
