How to change settings from a sensor type



Good Morning

I need to know, how i can change the sensor-settings. For example i would like to change the lower warning limit of the Disk-Free Sensors. The changes should affect to all existing sensors and also to all newly created.

Is this possible and how can i do this?

Thank you for your help

Remo St.

I see two options here: 1) Get a list of all the sensors that need to be changed via the "Sensors" menu and try to use the multiedit option to change the relevant setting. If that doesn't work: 2) Create a template with the sensor using the desired settings and deploy this template to all hosts carrying the relevant sensor. Then you need to delete the sensor from the machines and trigger a rediscovery using this template so add the re-add the sensor to the machines.

Unfortunately, a group functionality is badly missing here.
