Take an action on an event



Hi, Is it possible to have an event trigger an action? For example; if I have a WMI service sensor, and it stops responding, is there a way to trigger a script to run?

Thank you for your KB-post.

You can try using a custom notification for this scenario. For more information, please see PRTG Manual: Custom Notifications.

Best regards
