Windows Software restriction Policy + WMI Event LOG



Dear peeps,

I just rolled out Windows Software restriction Policy true out or systems. Now i wanne know if it's possible to monitor the events with PRTG, to be specific I know it's possible to get an trigger when te event has happend but is it also possible to get the full content of the event by mail (so not only the message Sensor is down etc. I wanne have the full content of that spec event)

Is that possible to get something like this:

Sensor eventlog software res .. is down because off:

Access to C:\Users\###\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Spotify.exe has been restricted by your Administrator by location with policy rule {34bc9b60-71be-4fca-8a3a-7b74eb8acdef} placed on path C:\Users\###\AppData\Roaming

Dear wgr

I am sorry, PRTG's eventlog capability is more limited. You can filter for a specific event, but you cannot put it into a notification. You might want to adapt this custom sensor script though.
