API: Capturing Downtime on PING Sensor Historical API Request - Power BI



Hi team,

When you create a PRTG historical report that includes a PING sensor, you get the option to include downtime over the reporting period. It's a great way to identify availability over that period.

It's acknowledged that historical reporting is one of PRTG's weak areas, with reports often failing to be created, or failing to send once created. For this reason, I've turned to using the API for historical data, and pulling this into Power BI.

The problem is that, for some reason, the API request for historical PING data doesn't return downtime data.

Has anyone managed to get downtime data per sensor over a reporting period from an API?
