Thank you for your message.

To rename many sensors in PRTG, you can use the following API call :


Here is the corresponding manual of the API: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/object_manipulation#object_settings

You also have the possibility to use the PowerShell module called PRTGAPI, whose documentation is available here: https://github.com/lordmilko/PrtgAPI/wiki.

If you have questions, let us know.
