I am trying to deploy nearly a thousand new devices, mostly from templates. However, I'm running into what appears to be limitations in the API and I'd like to know if there's anything I can do to circumvent.
1) WMI Service Sensors 2) Network Interface Sensors 3) SQL Statistics Sensors
I'm trying to use the SetObjectProperty API call to modify values in a template sensor, so for instance the interface name, the Service Name or the SQL instance name.
I get a HTTP 200 OK response when I commit the API call but the value doesn't change. All of these values are grayed out in the settings tab of the GUI, so my fear is that these are not able to be changed via the SetObjectProperty API call. Is that correct?
For reference, here is an example:
Is there a way to create these types of sensors from scratch without copying them from a template? Otherwise I'm looking at needed to manually create many hundreds of sensors by hand, through the GUI so I truly hope there is an automated way to accomplish this same thing.
Thank you, Adam
