Change a trigger for multiple sensors of the same type



I need to change the state trigger for a cpu sensor for a specific set of probes. How do I go about doing this specifically for these without having to trawl through 6000+ sensors

cpu-load sensor trigger

If you want to set up a trigger on a specific set of sensors, you can build a library for those sensors and filter by the sensor type and then set up a trigger on the library. The sensors in that library will then inherit this trigger. You can read more about libraries here

Library is a great way to do this. it allows the notification to be added to any new matching sensor also. All of my notifications are created this way. It is very helpful. Also then if you want to make a change you only have one place to do it.
