How do i setup a rest api monitor for a cradlepoint router




I have a cradlepoint ibr600c router wich i would like to monitor with prtg. They have an Rest API that i can use.

I think i can use the rest api sensor, but i don't know what i should enter in the 'rest query' field.

Can somebody help me?

Hi ernst,

Thank you for the post.

The field "rest query" displays the REST API query the Sensor should execute. Please enter the URL you want to sent to the receive the required values. Furthermore, you need to define a REST configuration. The REST configuration file shows that the sensor uses to map returned JSON or XML into sensor values.

Since the REST Custom Sensor is quite complicated, I recommend to check whether your target device can be queried via SNMP.

Best Regards,
