Device & Sensor Name Added to Report Data Files



User Story

As a PRTG User, I would like to see device name and sensor name added to the XML/CSV data files generated from a report.

Details of User Story

We use SLAs on devices monitored within the environment, the PDF report doesn't do any good to us. However, we do want to use the data files, on the previous software we had direct SQL access to pull this information, we have no issues with importing a CSV or XML (prefer CSV). However due to the data files missing Device Name, and Sensor Name, they are useless. Would it be possible to edit the generation of the report data files to include these two objects? Everything else about the report is perfect! It could even be added as options in the report settings menu, so it doesn't interfere with others that use the reports as they are today.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 Device & Sensor Name added as a selectable option when creating Report Settings

This basically gives us a set of cornerstones that need to be there in order for the feature to be implemented.
