Create custom sensor if name is



Dear support,

I'm busy with migrating current setup to new.

I want to create a customer VLAN sensor which only applies on vlans which begins with a name. Like all VLANS with name VLAN-XXXX I want to apply this on a fortigate. Downloaded MIB and found : OID with description: fg intf vlan hb ent if name

But cant find how to create this custom sensor.

Is this possible? and if yes how?

Thanks in advance,

customt-sensor oid vlan

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to add sensors depending on their name. The only option is to create all sensors, and then manually delete the ones that do not have VLAN in their name.

Kind regards,
