Hello Sara,
thank you for your KB-Post.

Please keep in mind that even when sensors were added to the template, they can only be deployed via the auto-discovery if the device on which you're running the discovery is compatible.

To confirm whenever the sensor can actually work on the device were you're running the discovery, please try and add the very same sensor manually. What's the outcome?

Please also refer to this guide for troubleshooting the discovery:

Best Regards,
