Feature Request - Teamviewer Sensor



Your Vote:




for Clients that we only reach by Teamviewer it would be great to have a sensor which checks the availability (online, offline, etc.) of the corresponding ID.

I don't know if thats technically even possible but I think it would be a great addition to make sure all systems are online. Or is there already a way to do it?

Thank you very much and best regards, Sommer.

we appreciate your contact and feedback.

There are currently no plans for a team-viewer specific sensor at the present time, but by checking their documentation this should be possible. Please have a look at:

Specifically, in the TeamViewer_API_Documentation.pdf available in the second link documents the following function:

GET /api/v1/sessions (list session codes)

That returns a list of sessions, which reports among other things:

  • sessions – List of session codes.
    • code – Session code.
    • state – State of the session. Can be "open" or "closed".
    • online – Online state of the session. Can be true or false
    • end_customer – End Customer info
      • name – Name of the end customer.
      • email – Email of the end customer.

I believe that this is the information you're after. You'll need to sort the authentication which involves oAuth, but based on this API documentation, it should be possible using PRTG's support for custom sensors:
