We need to be able to pass AWS Keys defined at the device level as parameters to custom sensors.
Details of User Story
When creating custom sensors that require Windows credentials, Linux credentials or the SNMP community string it is possible to define these at the device level and pass them to the custom sensor's parameters field with the use of placeholders (e.g. %linuxuser).
PRTG-provided AWS sensors (e.g. Amazon CloudWatch EC2) can have the AWS Keys they required defined at the device level as well. When creating custom sensors which interact with AWS resources, however, it is not possible to pass the AWS Keys as parameters because no placeholder for these values has been defined.
The workaround, entering the AWS Keys directly into the parameters field, is not a secure solution as these details are then available in plaintext to anyone with access to the sensor.
- AWS Access Key defined at device level must be available as a placeholder that can be entered into the parameters field of a custom sensor
- AWS Secret Key defined at device level must be available as a placeholder that can be entered into the parameters field of a custom sensor
