"Only use the triggers defined above" automation setting



I have 2000 sensors that have the "only use the triggers defined above" notification setting. I have the sensor ID's of those which have that checked. How can I automatically go through and check the box that says Inherit all triggers from parent objects and use the triggers defined above? I have looked through official PRTG API Documentation and the PRTGAPI third party add on documentation and no luck.

Hi, thanks for your question!

There is another knowledge base article here that discusses a question close to yours - it details using PrtgAPI to achieve something similar to what you're looking to do. Perhaps you might be able to adapt it?

Good luck :)
