Full hierarchy in %group notification placeholder?

Hi,

Our PRTG structure is set up with a hierarchy of Location/DeviceType/Subtype/Device, such as SiteXX/Servers/Linux/serverxx. In the notification's Group: field expanded from %group, it only shows "Linux", not the full hiearchy, so it's not apparent at what site the device is in. Is there any way to put a full hierarchical path in this field? If not, perhaps a %groupfull placeholder should be added as an enhancement. Thanks.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, there are no plans at the moment to implement such a placeholder in PRTG. Would "%probegroupdevice" work better for you?

Best regards.

I don't see a placeholder by that name in the document I use - https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/373-what-placeholders-can-i-use-with-prtg.

Hi there,

It's not listed as it is a combination of three items (probe, group, device).

Best regards.
