Question regarding tutorial "How can I configure sensors using speed limits to keep the status for m



Hi Felix, I have a question regarding this tutorial. Do I set a notification with the http action on the green IT sensor or the sensor that I want to stay in alarm status for more than one interval? And the line of code:


Do I need to write the objectid as #5149 or simply 5149? I'm kinda stomped after the tutorial the alarm staus does not last for more than one interval.

The trigger needs to be added to the sensor for which you want to keep the status. The sensor ID of the HTTP command needs to be the ID of the newly created Green IT sensor. Enter the ID without the hashtag.

As soon as the source sensor goes down, the notification will set the Green IT sensor into an error state.

Best regards, Felix
