Is there an API for changing Notification Template settings. Specifically adjusting the email address set in a Notification Template?

Hi there,

The official "change object"-API is not supporting this. However you could use the API that PRTG uses itself to change this field:

/editsettings?id=NOTIFICATION-ID&[email protected]

The first parameter is the ID of the Notification Template, the second is the email address that is entered in the "Send to Email Address"-field.
If you want to use this call in a script or anywhere else, please add the username and passhash:

&username=USER&passhash=1234567


Best regards.

That worked perfect! Is there an API call to do a test notification on a Notification Template?

Hi Will,

Yep. :)
Please see below:

/api/notificationtest.htm?id=TEMPLATEID

Also here, if you want to use this call in a script or anywhere else, please add the username and passhash:

&username=USER&passhash=1234567


Best Regards.

I want to be able to use the same /editsettings but be able to change the "Custom Content" filed under the Send Email section of the notification. Can this be done?

Hello Will Fox,

the /editsettings portion of the API is not documented. You can try to perform the action manually and check the web server access log ("C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Logs\webserver") to analyze the syntax. Please note there is no technical support for this.
