How to pass credentials to custom sensor?



I am working on a powershell script for a custom sensor. I can see from the manual (https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/custom_sensors#command_line) that you can pass Windows or Linux credentials. Are there similar parameters for the 'Credentials for Microsoft 365' or 'Credentials for Microsoft Azure'?

Hi there,

There are no more placeholders that you can use for custom sensors. You will need to pass the parameters without placeholders from the parent device.

Kind regards
