I cannot add custom sensor



I want to add a custom sensor using and OID i got from the MIB Importer but after creating the sensor i get this error: "No such instance (SNMP error # 223)" But if i add the MIB with the SNMP Library sensor i correctly get the value for that particular object.

custom-sensor mib-importer oid

I solved it. Apparently the importer doesn't show the complete OID for objects that have many instances (example the sfp type of interfaces). I did a walk test with the SNMP Tester on my device and there i got the complete OID for all the instances of the object.
