When using PRTG API, is it possible to use filter_device=xyz, where xyz are the same first 3 characters of any device name? In SQL I would write Like 'xyz%'

api filter prtg

Simply add &filter_name=@sub(xyz) to your query. Note that it will match all substrings, not only devices starting with the given string.
