How can I batch edit the Comment of a group?




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

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:


Kind regards,
