PRTG API getting historic data by choosing top list




I am getting historic data with api giving data sorted by protocols like dnsi tcp, http, etc. However, I want to get data by another top list member(By autonomous system number), Is there any way to poll api by choosing top list?

You can retrieve data from Toplists via the PRTG API with URLs such as the following:


However, you will have to know the ID of the Toplist as well as the topnumber (this is the identification of the individual Toplist you want to query). You can look up both in the web interface where the Toplists are displayed.

While the "ID" remains the same for the same Toplist, the "topnumber" is increased with every Toplist that is created (in default configuration, every 15 minutes).
