Rest Custom v2 Sensor - Get length of Array



Hi All

Is it still possible to monitor the length of a JSON array with the new Rest Custom v2 sensor?

I know it is possible within the Rest Custom Sensor (v1?) with a template and the len() function as value: "value": len($.*),


Is there a way to do the same with the Rest Custom v2 Sensor? https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/rest_custom_v2_sensor

Hi Manu,

This is not possible yet. However this sensor is still in BETA status which means that this sensor might be changed and support this in future.

Kind regards
