Log of actual notifications (messages)



There is Logs - System Events - Notifications, where we can see that a notifications has been triggered, however there seems to be no way to see the actual notifications with text of messages.

Would you please let us see at least last 1 hour of notifications with full text of messages?

Hi there,

PRTG does not log the content of the notifications. You can surely use the Notification Delivery Logging, but this is intended for debug purposes and can result in a lot of log files: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/55363-how-can-i-enable-notification-delivery-logging

Best regards.

Hi there,

id like to see in sensor-history, who had been notified so far. Now there is just the information whcih sensor / object / id is referenced. What does that information mean and how do i get the information i need?

Thx in advance

Hi wumanchu,

No this is not possible. If a notification trigger was activated, all Users/User Group defined in the notification template are notified. Therefore, you can only check which trigger (with which template) was activated.
