API Error Code



I'm attempting to clone a device from one group into a new group using the API. I have confirmed that my parameters look correct, but I'm getting the following response:

error: missing schema code: -1002

It comes along with a redirect and the ID in the redirected URL is indeed the cloned object - it seems to have worked. Can you shed some light on what the error code is telling me?

Hi there,

Please share the exact URL you have used and the installed PRTG version so we can try to reproduce this in our side.

Also have you executed this call within a browser or from a script (e.g. PowerShell).

Best regards.
