Hi,

yes it is possible.

Run Auto Discovery for an object: /api/discovernow.htm?id=objectid

objectid can be replaced with a group or device ID.

Further information can be found under "Setup -> PRTG API -> Object Manipulation"

How can I use the PRTG Application Programming Interface (API)?

Dear jmoore

PRTG allows to configure the auto-discovery to be run daily or weekly. This is a per-device (or per-group) setting.

If you need more control, please use a scheduling software to run a script which calls multiple /discovernow.htm API calls.
