HTTP Notification Action only Senor value

Hello all
My English is unfortunately not so good, for this reason I'll have it translated. I want to send via PRTG only the value of a sensor via HTTP Action to an ESP8266. But when I do this via PRTG I get with the placeholder %lastvalue not only the value 315 but:

TaskValueSet,6,1,315 Watt ($) "ActivePower"))_. 

The URL which I have defined under HTTP-Action is called:

http://10.XX.XX.XX/control?cmd=TaskValueSet,6,1,%lastvalue

If I call the following HTTP Action via browser it will be transferred to the ESp coorectly:

http://10.XX.XX.XX/control?cmd=TaskValueSet,6,1,315

How can I get PRTG to transfer only the value? Many thanks for a suggestion

So the last value for the sensor you want to send from is
TaskValueSet,6,1,315 Watt ($) "ActivePower"))_.
If so, then PRTG will send this full line in the %lastvalue placeholder. Can you get the sensor to just return the integer of 315?

Hi Mister Day The sensor which PRTG queries and fetches the data I cannot influence. Unless there is a possibility to convert data in PRTG. Then of course I could pass the data only as integer to the other system. Can I convert, truncate etc. such data in PRTG?

Best regards

Which sensor are you using to accomplish this taks?
I think you should try using the HTTP Advanced Sensor as it can check for keywords.
Let me know how that sensor works for you.

Hello,

Could you please confirm if you tried using the HTTP Advanced Sensor, searching for a keyword? Does that work properly?

Best regards
