Hello All,

I want to change the dependency type of a ping sensor to "Master object for Parent" through the API.

Can anyone tell me how to do this (I'm unable to find in the documentation how to do it).

Regards,

Janten

api dependency master-object

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is not even an undocumented way to change the dependency of an an object via API. You actually can set the dependency to "Master Object", but you are unable to disable the inheritance of the "Schedules, Dependencies and Maintenance Window Options". This is intended to prevent users from breaking their PRTG Installations.

Best regards.

Hi,

As described earlier, we will not release this API-Call as it could break your PRTG Installation if not used in the correct way. Additionally, it wouldn't save you time as you have to disable the inheritance manually for each changed object.

Best regards.
