How to find devices with custom sensor value xyz



I would like to edit all devices which have a special snmpcustomstring sensor value.

At the moment I can for example search for the string "vg" (voice gateway) and the result is an overview of all devices with device name vg-xyz . Then I can mark and edit all of them for deploying a new devicetemplate.

I added a snmpcustomstring sensor to all VG´s with delivers the devicetype for example "Cisco 2801"

Now I would like to filter all devices with have got this value and after that I would like to give these devices a new device template.

Does anyone now a way to acomplish this?

Best regards Robert

I'm afraid that isn't possible directly within PRTG, seeing as sensor results are not part of the search available with the software.
