Notification only for device with tag "printer"




We would like to build the following:

Our administrator for printers is registered in PRTG. All of our printers are monitored in PRTG as well and have the tag "printer". What we want is that when "SNMP Printer"-Sensor in Group A, D and C but not B gives a warning/error, this administrator receives an email with what is wrong.

I worked it out that he receives every error but I can't work it out so that he receives only errors from sensor SNMP Printer

alerts notifications printer

i think you can manage this with the "Bibliotheken/Libraries". You can define a object there containing all sensors with specific tags.

Beside the normal alert you can define another alert in the Library.
