Is there any automated option to delete the PRTG devices ?



Recently we have implemented the Amazon autoscaling in our cloud environment. Once the new instances come in to production, we have some template to configure to new instance in to PRTG however the new instances will be terminated once its work finished then we need to delete the sensors manually in PRTG.

Is there any automatic Technic to delete the PRTG sensors maunally ??

you might have a look at the PRTG API for this purpose. You can delete objects using the same. When on the API overview, just switch to tab Object Manipulation for detailed information.
Best regards
