Object trigger on OK state



Hello, Here are object triggers for Down, Warning, Unusual and Partial Down status. But seems there is no trigger for OK status. I know there is a "When condition clears after a notification was triggered", but this doesn't fire when... there was no notification triggered before ! So, when using a notification via "Execute HTTP action", it cas be good to trigger a webhook at every test when the status is "OK". Example : we use this to trigger via API blinkstick.com notification leds to visually monitor sensor conditions. For the moment, to have a led showing green via a http action "notification" trigger, we need first to create a... down event. Is there a way to use a "OK" trigger, or can this been taken into account for an eventual future update ? Thanks,

http-action notification trigger

Hi Yves,

Currently, there are no plans to integrate a status trigger for the "ok" status, sorry. You can either write your own script to first activate the LED (might be started by a scheduled task in Windows), or use the SensorCountXML sensor to check the status of the sensor and set this sensor into a warning or error if the sensor is "ok". This will allow you to trigger events even if the status is not directly supported by PRTG. You can use the -r switch to only filter for this sensor.

Best regards, Felix
