Setting up a warning state and color on a SNMP sensor




So I just got my SNMP sensor working thanks to help in another thread : https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/72981-fortigate-snmp-sensor-stuck-on-config

Now I got a sensor, for each of the VPN tunnel on my device, that is named "FORTINET-FORTIGATE-MIB/fg vpn tun: 1/fg vpn tun ent status" and who is reporting "up" or "down" depending on the tunnel state.

It's already nice, but I would have liked for it to change color depending on the state : turn red when the state is down. It seems simple but I can't find any settings to do just that ...

I'm thinking, maybe setting up another sensor to check the return of this one will do the trick ?

Thanks in advance

I guess there is no such thing for now. Because the sensor state icon is a picture and there is no color adjustment (https://--prtg server url in your computer--/icons/icon_down.svg) . The following link has a similar topic. You can examine. good work.. https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/54263-change-color-of-acknowledge-sensor-status-in-prtg
