Is it possible for a factory sensor to inherit channel thresholds?



I'm creating factory sensors for each of my app environments as kind of a rollup of everything that's going on, and I'd like the channels in the factory sensor to display the red-yellow-green thresholds that their child sensor/channels do, but currently it looks like I have to manually redefine all these thresholds on the new factory sensor.

I'm wondering if there's a way for the factory sensor channels to inherit the threshold settings from their child sensor/channels?

Thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid Sensor Factory Sensors cannot read or inherit the threshold settings (or error/warning-limits) from their source channels. It will be necessary to enter this additionally on the Factory Sensors.

best regards.
