SNMP Trap reciever notification : trap message filter



I wanted to know if there's a way to curate the messages and send only portion that you want in email notifications.

The filters only filters by the whole snmp trap.

I would like to know if I can send a notification or get alerts containing only a single OID from the entire snmp message.

Currently the snmp trap receiver place holder in a notification template it only returns the "last 20 messages" in the the notification. I'd like to be able to filter the message itself in the notification.

Thank you for your message.

I'm afraid that there is no option to only send a specific OID/value in a notification. Therefore, I invite you to open a feature request by following our guideline here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg.

If you have questions, let us know.
