Export sensors and import into different PRTG instance



Is it possible to export a group of sensos from one PRTG instance and then import them into a dfferent PRTG instance?

We have 3500 sensors in a PRTG instance hosted by a 3rd party (they have multiple customers on their instance) and we are wanting to move to our own self hosted instance. We would really rather not have to re-create all of these sensors in our new instance.

is this possible?

as of now, object transfer is not possible across different PRTG setups. We work on a solution, but it could be that only on-premise setups, or only PRTGs of the same kind are supported. There is no ETA, as this feature is in early stages.
