Channel dependency in lookup file



Is it possible to create a channel dependency in a lookup file? I have a channel with an admin state and a channel with an operational state, that are both processed with two different lookup files. When the admin state is down, both channels should only go into a warning, because the operational state also has to be down at this moment. If the admin state is up, but the operational state is down, the operational state should show an error. So I need a dependency between those two channels, that are in one SNMP Custom Sensor.

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to create dependencies between channels.

Kind regards,
