Hello there,

We appreciate your contact.

You can add multiple devices via auto-discovery. Please navigate to the group settings, under the heading "Group Type" you can select the type of auto-discovery you want to use. After that you can choose a IP range, a list of individual IPs and DNS names and so on. After starting the auto discovery, the PRTG Server tries to ping the chosen devices and add them to this group.

For more information about Auto Discovery, please follow this link: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/auto_discovery

Kind regards,
