Hello,

I want to build an application that I can use in the morning to scan all the errors that have occurred during that night. Is there an API call that I can use which will give me the data shown in https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/logs?

api logs rest

You can do this fairly easily with PrtgAPI, using either C# or PowerShell

The following shows the basic usage using PowerShell

C:\> Get-ObjectLog -Status Down

DateTime               Id     Name                       Device             Status         Message

You can specify a start and end range for your query, then group by ID to get a list of unique events

# Get all alerts that occurred in the last 24 hours
C:\> Get-ObjectLog -status Down -EndDate (get-date).adddays(-1) | group Id

Count Name                      Group
----- ----                      -----

Based on your requirements, this could simply be a one liner (with the end date simply being 5pm yesterday, etc) or you could wrap this up in a slightly more advanced application, potentially sending you an automated report, etc
