User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to be able to configure if an Amazon Cloudwatch SQS sensor shows an Alert, a Warning or normal status in case no datasets have beeen found.

Details of User Story

For our usecase of Amazon Cloudwatch SQS sensors the fact that no datasets have been found for a queue is not an error condition, the queue just had not been used for some time. I'd like to be able to decide in the sensor's settings which sensor status should be shown in such cases.

Acceptance criteria

  • New configuration option in the Amazon Cloudwatch SQS sensor type which defines the sensor status if no datasets can be found.
  • If no datasets are found, the sensor shows the status which had been defined in its settings.
