Limit the number of sensores a users can add



is it possible to limit the number of sensors a user or group can add to the objects he has access to?

We have some users who work with PRTG, most of them have only read-access. I would like to give them fullaccess, so they can add new sensors to their servers and other objects on there own. But i have to limit the number they can add, otherwise the amount of sensors would be to much.

Is this possible?

Hi Michael,

The best way to do this (and the only) is to set the "Number of Sensors Limitation" option in the group settings. So this would presume that every user/user group is maintaining their own group.

Best regards.
