I have several device groups (group1, group2, group3). Is it possible to backup all the devices belonging to group1? Backup of configuration, data and monitored values.

Hello there and thank you for your inquiry.

I'm afraid that it is not possible to export individual devices, sensors or configurations.

Only the complete configuration (the PRTG Configuration.dat) and Historic Data can be backed-up. Please refer to the following guide if you're interested in backing-up PRTG:

Best Regards,
