(Posts as a reply won't be published in this feature request thread. Read Me!)

User story

As a PRTG user, I want to be able to shorten Strings using Regex using the SNMP Custom String sensor.

Details of user story

OID might return a long string. If I'm only interested in part of it, I want to be able to extract a specific part of the string using Regex (similar to the "Numeric Value Extraction" feature) to shorten the sensor message.

Acceptance criteria

  • Add "String Extraction" feature to the SNMP Custom String sensor
