Automatically delete sensor by name



I set the "Port Name Update" field to "Automatic sensor name update if name changes in device" for my network switches. When I change a interface description on my Cisco Switches it will update the sensor name as desired. I want to know if it's possible to automatically delete the sensor if sensor's name changes to something specific like UNUSED_PORT. Maybe a script?
