Message forward



My software has a gateway that can receive alert (strings) and generate alerts and tasks. I have been asked by my customer to monitor a UPS device in the data center which I monitor via PRTG. I am looking for a way to forward the alert/notification from PRTG to my gateway.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you can use notifications with "execute program" option.

You just have to write a script (.bat or powershell) that will deliver the string to your Gateway when PRTG detect an issue and generate a notification...

The question is : How can you deliver this string to your Gateway through this script.

Hello assafh,

Thank you very much for your contact.
Indeed, the best approach would be to use the Execute Program setting within a PRTG notification. This will require a customized script but is most likely the best shot here.

Best regards,
