Hello there,

Thanks for your inquiry, we appreciate your contact regarding this matter!

Since a few versions MS Teams is integrated in our notifications. Please open the settings of a notification and scroll down to "Send Microsoft Teams Message". You can configure the notification there.

Please do not hesitate to ask further questions.


Kind regards,
Birk Guttmann, Tech Support Team

Hi, i have added the notification and it is sending data to a teams channel but it is not displaying any parameters, just the name of the sensor and the device is correctly displayed, and rest like sensor status, since, device/service url do not show any data.

how do i correctly feed the data for those parameters?

That's strange, are you using that with a live notification or the notification test?

yes, i'm using that with a live notification, basically want to integrate it with Microsoft Teams.

all the prerequesites were done properly and i can see the notification in the teams channel but there is no valid data like if the device is up or down, etc is displayed.

This works actually with %sensor on %device is in a %status state! Details Current State %status Message %message Since %since Last up %lastup Sensor prtg_sensorurl Device prtg_deviceurl Management URL %serviceurl

Did you already try the custom content option? Latest version installed?

Hi Stephan,

This is what results with that line you wrote last:

I tested simply with the initial parameters provided in the guide:

-sensor '%sensor' -sensorID '%sensorid' -status '%status' -message '%message' -since '%since' -lastup '%lastup' -device '%device' -sensorURL '%linksensor' -deviceURL '%linkdevice' -serviceURL '%serviceurl'

and I get the following result:

Why not use the native MS Teams notifications? :)

You'll need to create a new notification via Setup | Account Settings | Notification Templates. The option is named Send Microsoft Teams Message. It will then be available as a notification trigger.
