Adding Notifications & Triggers through the API



I have a number of devices that I am monitoring that are all identical. I need to add a State Trigger and notification to them all. All are on different probes.

Is there a way I can do this with a bulk edit, or through the API?

Notifications based on libraries would be the easiest, most manageable approach here. Simply add a tag to the device(s). See also the Paessler website: How to set up notifications via the PRTG web interface.
