User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to be able to have a sensor/a device dependent on multiple sensors/devices.

Details of User Story

In greater environments we're often monitoring multiple locations. For sure we have a secure S2S VPN to each of this locations. Same, the locations have S2S VPNs among themselves. In case one location is going offline (error) all machines are depending on the PING sensor of the external devices. At the same time at each location the VPN Sensors to the offline location are going into error because we're not able to set the dependencies to their own external device AND the corresponding location.

Just one of many scenarios where multiple dependencies would be very useful - as we can see in the "asked questions" section.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 Be able to make a sensor dependent on two/multiple sensors - not just one.
  • Criterion #2 (no must have) Be able to make a device dependent on two/multiple devices/sensors.
