Edit default channel values




is it possible to edit the default channel setting of a sensor?The goal should be when a new sensor is created that only the limit value for errors is defined (without templates).

Example Sensor SNMP Disk Storage Default: Limit value for error 10% no more warning

Thanks and greetings,

Thank you for your message.

I'm afraid that it's not possible to modify the default limits of the sensor, device templates stay the best option to change limits while adding the sensors.
