Device details



Hello, how can I retrieve device details using API? Something similar to /api/getsensordetails.json?id=sensorid

But device, not sensor. I need device name based on device ID

Thank you

If you go to Setup -> PRTG API -> Live Data, there is a Query Builder that can help you with this.

Here is the query you would append to your PRTG web interface URL for details on your Local Probe device. /api/table.json?content=devices&output=json&columns=objid,probe,group,device,host,downsens,partialdownsens,downacksens,upsens,warnsens,pausedsens,unusualsens,undefinedsens&id=1

The Live Data page explains each column, and you just put in the corresponding ID for the device.
