Hello Marco,

Thank you for your message.

Regarding your question, I'm afraid that it is not possible to export/import configuration of sensors/devices/groups in PRTG.

The only way to add objects would be to export their configuration and duplicate a Master object in PRTG before executing API call to modify its parameters.

If you have questions, let us know.
