Sensor templates



Is it somehow possible to create a sensor template? I use the SNMP Custom Sensor to get interface properties from a switch stack. This switch stack get extended from time to time. Because of that, I have to create more sensors, that are build up pretty similar. So I thought, that a sensor template would really help me, before I have to create each single sensor with all the different options.

I'm afraid there's no "sensor template", however a Device Template contains information for nearly all sensors on a device including all relevant settings. While creating a device template you can exclude sensors, so that it only contains your snmp custom sensor.

thanks for the answer. Then I might have to work with the Device Template.
