How to include a link to the sensor in an email notification ?



Hello, I am using PRTG version and I want to insert a link to the sensor in the notification email from the server. In the email setup, I have configured the insertion of the link to the sensor by adding "%homesensor.htm?id=%sensorid" similar to PRTG version 17., but on version the sensor ID value incorrect return. I tried with the %sensor, %id, %idsensor, but all failed. Can someone tell me what to do?

The placeholder "%linkdevice" is working fine for me so you should try to use "%linksensor".
