Auto Discovery not showing up in CoreAutoDiscovery



I'm trying to create filters in a device template, and I want to have the field data for things like "name" and "oid". I saw on another forum post that the best way to do that is to run an auto discovery and open up the log under C:\ProgramData\Paessler\PRTG Network Monitor\Logs\debug. I tried that, but running auto discovery did not add anything new to the log. I checked in CoreAutoDiscovery and CoreAutoDiscovery.log.1
