(Posts as a reply won't be published in this feature request thread. Read Me!)

User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to use Placeholders for DB credentials in Exe/Xml sensors, like username, password, sid, and port. As of now I use %windowsuser as username, %windowspassword as password, %windowsdomain as port, and manually add sid for each sensor.

Acceptance criteria

  • add placeholder "%dbusername" which holds the configured username
  • add placeholder "%dbpassword" which holds the configured password
  • add placeholder "%dbsid" which holds the configured sid
  • add placeholder "%dbport" which holds the configured port
