User story

As a PRTG user, I would like to use my Viral Environment as a source.

Details of user story

We have many different networks and domains. Unfortunately, these sources are not available for an automatic search. But we are 99% virtual. In vCenter we have all the information we need hosts, VMs etc.. But we cannot use these as a source for an automatic search group. I think in this day and age this is definitely a "valid" source.

In the course of this, the current SOAP sensors could also be made more efficient.

Acceptance criteria

  • vCenter as Source for Groups
  • selection after Pools/Folder etc.
