How can I get data from a string value inside of a table

I using the custom table beta amd I can view everything except a string which is referenced in the setup guide for the customer table snmp sensor. The reference suggests you cannot get string values as it will mark the sensor as down. If I need to monitor a string value inside of a sensor, how would I do that besides cretating a custom string value sensor just for that string that belongs inside of a table sensor. Thanks.

That's not possible as suggested by the guide. The SNMP Custom Table Sensor cannot work with string values, as strings need to be either evaluated with lookups, keywords or regex the setup within the table sensor would become too complex.

Alternatively, consider deploying individual SNMP Custom String Lookup or SNMP Custom String sensors. If you need to process the string in a single multi-channel sensor, consider writing a custom script using your language of preference and use NET-SNMP to query the data from the device, there are examples of powershell+NET-SNMP on our KB:
