Powershell Sensor Saving String in graph



Hi There, I am using a powershell script to monitor AD lockouts as described here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/57603-is-it-possible-to-monitor-active-directory-user-account-status However I cannot seem to be able to store the locked out users names for historical data.

Is it possible to store create a channel with string based content

active-directory custom-sensor exe powershell

Sensor messages are not logged via historic data, i.e. only numeric data is stored. You may want to check this workaround :)
