Hi I have over one thousand sensors and I need to edit the tags on all of them. Is there a way of editing them all at once rather than going through each sensor? Is it also posible to run a report showing what tags are in use whith which sensors?

Thanks

David

Hello David,

Thank you for your post.

You can add tags to multiple sensors at once using Multi-Edit.
It is possible to add sensors to a report using a tab, but reports do not display what tags a sensor has.

Hi If this can not be done via a report, is there another way to all the tags associated with each sensor?

Thanks

Hello David,

You could get a list of sensors with a specific tag by going to Sensors>By Tag>'select sensor tag'. You could also get a list of all sensors with a specific tag by using the PRTG API. The API call for this would be something like:
/api/table.xml?content=sensors&output=xml&columns=objid,probe,group,device,sensor,status,lastvalue&filter_tags=tagname


Kind regards,
