SNMP Trap messages, errors, and warning delivered by SMS



Although SNMP Trap data (and Syslog too) is passed in Custom Content for Email, there doesn't seem to be a way to pass it in SMS. These days SMS messages support much longer strings of content. Are there any plans to allow SNMP Trap data and Syslog data to be passed to SMS notifications?

Hi Templem,

You can find a full list of all available placeholders and for the type of notification here.

Note: Exceptions in usage apply to the placeholders for syslogs and SNMP traps. These can be used in the Custom Content field of Send Email notifications only.}}}

I'm afraid that this feature is not part of our current road map so far: https://www.paessler.com/prtg/roadmap

If this is important to you, you can create a feature request as described here. This will allow other users to vote for the feature as well.

Kind regards,
Felix Saure, Tech Support Team
