Dear Support Team, How can i bulk change "Connection Status Handling" in sensors setting? Currently i have to change this option sensor by sensor. If its not possible, is there any solution to find out which sensors use which option in one report or etc.?

Hello Hossein,

You can go through "Sensors | By Type | SNMP Traffic", this will present you a link like this and list the first 50 traffic sensors (and the rest on following pages):


With the addition of "&count=*" at the end, it will list all traffic sensors without being split over several pages:


Select them all and use multi-edit to alter "Connection Status Handling" for all selected sensors.

Kind regards,
