How can I extract total list of devices to a file?



As the maximum number of xml file is limited to 500, I tried to export device list to an xml file but it was not a complete list.

The total quantity of device is around 700.

How can I export the full list of device to a file at a time?

For every API call, the default limit of items is 500. If you want to receive more items per call, please add the "&count=xxx" parameter with enough room for all of your devices.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried my own API code but failed.
Below is the code I wrote.



Could you share the exact API code to export the device full list?

Please let me know where to find various API code for exporting.

Hi there,

I just tested your provided API call and it worked fine on my PRTG instance.

What result do you get here?

Kind regards,
