Custom Sensor (XML) Skydrive (e.g.) objectid



Ok I have the custom sensor SDUsageXML.exe which I have copied to Custom Sensors\EXEXML

I also have the Token tool. What I am missing (and don't understand) is how I determine the SensorID or ObjectID


objectid register-sensor sensorid

may I ask why you do need the sensorID? The only parameter the sensor needs is the token which is generated with the Token generator.\ Just add a EXE/XML sensor in PRTG and from the list of executables choose the one you need. Best regards

For Skydrive (and GoogleDrive) this says you need the "sensor's ObjectId".


I think I have it now. If I clikc the sensor, the ID is top right.

After generating a token I get "<prtg><error>1</error><text>The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.</text></prtg>

May you send a screenshot of your sensor's tab Settings to [email protected]. Please refer to this article when sending the email.
