How to get a list of devices newly discovered/created in specific date range



I'm using the following API command to get a list of newly created devices/sensors: /api/table.csv?content=messages&columns=objid,datetime,type,name,device,status,message&filter_status=501

Is there a way to specify a date range (I see sdate and edate are used in the API for specific objects), but this doesn't seem to work for my command. (I know it'll only list the most recent 500 which can be altered)

There are two ways the date can be specified

1. With an sdate/edate


2. With a time period


Possible values for filter_drel include today, yesterday, 7days, 30days, 12months, 6months

You can also do this way easier via PrtgAPI using PowerShell

C:\> Get-ObjectLog -Status Created -Start (Get-Date).AddDays(-1) -End (Get-Date).AddDays(-7)

DateTime               Id     Name      Device      Status         Message
--------               --     ----      ------      ------         -------
11/04/2019 10:28:10 PM 2091   exch-1    exch-1      Created        See history for details.
11/04/2019 10:22:38 PM 2090   dc-1      dc-1        Created        See history for details.

For more information on using Get-ObjectLog, see the wiki.
