Export PRTG devices to CSV file



Hi all,

I'm new to using PRTG. I'd like to know if there is any way to export the devices from PRTG.

The list i'm trying to get is like so: Probe, Group, Sub-Group (if there is any), Device.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mohamed,

Thank you for your message.

To export a list of the devices configured, you can use the following API call:


Please, replace the information according to your configuration. You will find your passhash in Setup > Account Settings > My Account ("/myaccount.htm?tabid=1") by clicking on the corresponding button.

You can also generate a list with the XML format by using table.csv in the request above.

Here are the other information you can get as well:


Finally, I just want to notice that it's not possible to get the entire hierarchy of the device. The information returned by Group is only the name of the parent group, parent_id also return the id of the parent group (not above).
