Hello, I need to change Notifications setting for ca.1000 devices in one of their sensors. I just want to turn them of by changeing option to "Only use triggers defined below". Is there a way to change this in a one shot via web, gui or api interface? Or I need to go and click through all 1000 devices manually? brg, TG.

Dear tgrazka

I am sorry, there is no multi-edit feature for notifications. The only notification-related API call is to test a notification, however the configuration of notifications or triggers is not accessible through the API.

Is there a way to report notification settings for sensors, devices and groups? I need at least to find out objects which have notifications switched off with setting "Trigger Inheritance: Only use the triggers defined below" (and there is nothing below defined).

Hello Tomasz,

For one, you could use from the menu Sensors | Cross Reference. Another approach would be to use PRTG's API with a call like this for example (add this after the IP/Hostname of your PRTG installation, e.g. 127.0.0.1/api/....):

/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=group,device,sensor,notifiesx

Kind regards.
