User story

It would be nice if custom sensors could be easily added with Meta-Scan.

The actual solution with Auto-Discovery and Device Template is not very handy: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/68109-how-can-i-use-meta-scans-for-custom-exe-script-sensors

Acceptance criteria

  • Check if script returns meta data
  • If meta data are available, parse the data and generate a list of items which can be monitored
