Can i somehow use Alerts by Tags? For ex. i have group named Servers, inside it a lot of devices (100+), on group level i want to create SMS-alerts by tag "SAP" for one person, without tag "SAP" to other person. Is it possible?

You can accomplish alerts based on tags with Libraries. Unfortunately, we cannot do reporting based on a lack of a tag.

So in your case, I would come up with two different tags, and tag the sensors appropriately.

Please check out our manual page on Libraries.
