Hi, I am looking for a way to define name to each interface by some its tag or vice versa. Example:

I just discover 3 interfaces as SNMP traffic sensor and 1 sensors as Ping.

Ping 24 - Ping sensor Eth1 - INTERNET Eth2 - MPLS Eth3 - LAN

I pre configure a tag on each of them manual or by Auto discovery template. I would like the name to be changed by its tag. Example

Eth1 without name with defined tag "outside" will be renamed to INTERNET or vice versa, Eth1 without name with defined name INTERNET will be tagged as "outside" automatically

Thanks

customize discovery interface tags

Sorry, that's not possible out of the box with PRTG. You might want to look into the API where you can retrieve the tags and manipulate object properties.
