Hello,

I need to change the comment of a group and all subgroups to the same value. I have read a lot about batch editing using the management view. But there I have no possibility to change the comment of the group. Is there any way to accomplish that?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards, Christoph

Hello Christoph,

Bulk-Changing the comments in PRTG is not possible via the GUI I'm afraid. This would require some scripting and using the API. The API call would look like this:

http://prtg/api/setobjectproperty.htm?id=ObjectId&name=comments&value=New%20Comment

The ID needs to be exchanged by the ID of the object you wish to add the new comment to.

To get a list with all IDs in PRTG, this API call can help you:

/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=objid,device,sensor,status&id=13337

Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
