Notification Trigger Inheritance



If "Inherit all triggers from parent objects and use the triggers defined above" is selected, does one override the other or do they both apply?

For example, my inheritance is "When sensor state is Down for at least 300 seconds, perform @ Outage Notification" and my explicit trigger is "When sensor state is Down for at least 600 seconds, perform @ Server Outage Notification".

What would happen when the sensor goes down in this scenario?

Hello SteveP,

Thanks for your KB post. Both notification triggers rule will be applied.

For more information, please have a look at our manual. https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/sensor_notifications_settings
