Is it possible to clone a sensor to multiple devices

I am trying to add the same "WMI Service Monitor" Sensor to all the Windows servers devices to monitor if a specific services is running or not. I see the clone feature is one to one and I see where you can do a device template and run auto discovery on all the devices based off that template but when I try to clone one of the devices as a template I don't see that specific sensor in the list of sensors to choose from.

Are there some sensors that can not be added to the device template list? If so do I have any other option other than just cloning the sensor to each server one at a time?

Hello,
if you switch to the "Management" tab you can mark multiple sensors (press ctrl). Now you can drag and drop the marked sensors to a another device. The marked sensors will now be cloned to that device.

Thank you that is a huge help, it speed up the time it took to add all the sensors compared to cloning them one by one. I still wish there was a better way to do this but I am just happy I don't have to clone them all by hand!
