Bulk change device sensors



Is there any way to change all sensors on an object to look at Ping as the dependency? I can change other factors but the dependency is missing when I select multiple sensors. I have about 80 or so devices that I need to update the dependency on. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Matt,

Unfortunately, the multi-edit tool can't be used for this. The auto-discovery feature can be used to create ping sensors for devices, and the dependencies of a parent object can be inherited, but the ability to configure this en masse is lacking.

All sensors on a device look to ping as a dependency, but you may need to adjust your ping sensor's settings. It may be useful to remove the existing ping sensors and have auto-discovery create new sensors for ping.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards
