After speaking to (Danish) customers with a XL1 configuration it was remarkable there were two of them asking for the same feature.
For companies it is often the case they have a list from their previous solution a list of devices that they want to add the soonest, with VERY little labor to their PRTG configuration.
Currently the PRTG API only allows you to clone an existing device, which needs to be started after the cloning as well.
Please provide us with a solution to add groups and devices using a CSV format type of file.
The solution should allow:
GROUPS: For groups to indicate the parent group by using the group ID (It is OK to inherit the setting from this parent). A record header could like like this: "Group Name","ID of Parent Group Name"
DEVICES: For a device the CSV record must contain: • name of the device to be imported • the id of the group that will hold the new device • indicate for the IP version, like IP4 or IP6 • the actual IP address in the format of version • sensor detection
For the sensor detection you might allow a value like a 1,2 or 3 value where: • 1=no auto discovery • 2=automatic device discovery which in the current web console is called "standard" • 3=automatic device discovery which in the current web console is called "detailed"
From my experience multiple organizations that already use PRTG will benefit from this feature as well.
Hope this gets voted up very high ;-)
Thank you all for your support of this request in advance
