How to display API text in PRTG logs



Hi PRTG Support Team,

Do you know how we can enable another column in the Log tab for a sensor?

Currently, there is only Date Time, Sensor, Status and Message.

Message only contains a brief explanation of the value and if it results in an up or down state for exceeding a certain pre-set threshold.

We are using the following PowerShell API code to push the state to the sensor:

Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "http://PROBEADDRESS/APIKEY?value=$global:APIValue&text=$global:APIText"

We want the APIText value to be visible under Log tab as an additional column.

How do we achieve this?
