How can I fetch sensor-settings with http-api?

api objectdata xml-response

You can get this with 'getobjectproperty.htm?id=xy&name=abc' for one Setting of an Object with the ID 'xy' and the 'name' of the setting. This works well with a setting that is relatively simple but more complex settings are a bit confusing. Also, this is not directly exported as an XML file. An example is below for getting the scanning interval of a sensor with the ID 1002:

Not really nice but it works (needs 4 http-requests per mssql-sensor to have the instance, port, db and statement). Thank you for the answer
