Auto add/remove active devices

I have setup a auto discover to monitor connected devices to the router. (This is a different group to ones that have a static)

What I would like if when a device's ping is not active, it will automatically remove that device from the tree. Is this possible?

Cheers in advanced.

Hello there,

This is possible by using the API. You can create a notification template that will execute a API call which will delete the device, you then only need to set up a notification trigger for your Ping sensor.
Please note, that you would need to use the placeholder '%deviceid' (instead of the 'objectid') in the API call in order to have the parent device deleted.


Kind regards,
