Can I filter my alerts by items that are NOT tagged with a certain tag?



Right now I use a shortcut with the following URL to view all sensors/devices that are tagged with a specific tag like this: https://prtg.paragusit.com/sensors.htm?filter_tags=@tag(FilterTag)

I want to review all sensors that are specifically NOT marked with that tag, in order to audit and ensure that devices which are not set to inherit tags from above are appropriately marked. I'm hoping there is something like https://prtg.paragusit.com/sensors.htm?filter_tags=@NOTtag(FilterTag)

I know that maps use the - symbol as a NOT operator (like -FilterTag), is there something similar in the URL that I can use?

Thanks in advance!

That would be the following: filter_tags=@tag(pythonxml,-dontshow)

All objects that contain dontshow within their tags will be excluded. Contrary to that, use a + as a logical AND (+mustshow).

Kind regards,
