Credentials - per group, per device and PER SENSOR



Your Vote:




how can I set credentials per sensor that are different from higher levels of credentials (group, device)?

How can I than copy/add such sensor with these credentials to multiple devices?

PRTG GUI sadly doesn't seem to offer setting credentials per sensor.

clone credentials sensor-level-credentials

Hello R,
Thanks for your KB-posting.

Actually, it's not possible to set different credentials on sensor level. This can only be done on device- (or group-/probe-) level.

If you want to run two sensors with different credentials on one target hosts, you need to deploy this host two times. One with credentials A, one with credentials B.

Best regards,
