Is there a DTD XML schema definition for the <prtg> XML used in advanced custom sensors?

I wish to add schema validation to the automated tests for my advanced (XML-returning) custom sensors, so I can check it returns valid XML before deploying it live. Do you maintain a DTD for the XML described here: https://rahqb-prtg.re-assured.net/help/custom_sensors.htm#advanced_elements, so I can use a validator to check it?

Ideally I should be able to fetch the current DTD for a specified version of PRTG, so I can check it against the version we are using and against new version of PRTG before we upgrade. However, just a link to the latest DTD would be OK.

Hi there,

The Link appears to be not valid. Can you please re-add a proper one for further analysis.

Best regards,

I can't edit the question - it give Internal Server Error. The URL in the manual is: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/custom_sensors#advanced_sensors

Ok, thank you very much for the clarification. No, we don't maintain DTD but a regular XML validation checker that you can find online, like the one from w3schools will be sufficient.

Best regards,
Sebastian
