Hi there,

Please clarify where exactly you have trouble? When the HTTP action is triggered, PRTG sends a webrequest to the defined address.

I need to make an http action file to notify the sensors that it changes state, but I have no idea with making the declaration that it should have, to send that information

Hi Juan,

If I understand you correctly, you want to change the HTTP Sensor if a certain action happens on the web server? Therefore, I recommend to use a HTTP Advanced Sensor or you configure a certain limit in the channel.
