Passing parameters into a powershell script




I got a power-shell script that sends a message using Twilio service.

I would like to use it as a notification in PRTG.

I don't understand how I can pass PRTG parameters like what is down, what time, what is the down message etc etc into this script that I am executing.

Can I ask some guidance on this?

Many thanks.

Simply use the available placeholders in the parameter field. Make sure that you modify your script accordingly, so it evaluates these parameters accordingly (https://ss64.com/ps/syntax-args.html).
