How to filter by both Sensor Type + Status




I need to create a view of all sensors of a specific type (let's say FreeDisk WMI) and their status (only ones that are down) on a single URL.

I can get a list of the first one (all sensors of a specific type) but I can't sort it further by state. How can I do that?

Hello there,

You can simply create a "combined" url using two filters.

Here's what I mean:

When you click on the down sensors overview, you get something like this: http(s)://your.prtg.server/sensors.htm?id=0&filter_status=5

When you go through the menu Sensors | By Type | W... | WMI Free Disk Space you see this url: http(s)://your.prtg.server/sensors.htm?filter_type=wmidiskspace

Now here's the "combined" url using both filters: http(s)://your.prtg.server/sensors.htm?id=0&filter_status=5&filter_type=wmidiskspace

In case the listed sensors do not fit on one page, you can also add this at the end of the url: &count=* This ensures to list all found sensors on one page.

Kind regards,
