User story

We have switched from WhatsUpGold to PRTG. In Whatsup, there was an option to send an OK message only if the device had also sent a "Down" message beforehand. I miss this feature in PRTG. Currently, I get an OK message even for short failures where no alarm threshold was exceeded, and that is not nice.

Acceptance criteria

  • Change "no longer Down" trigger to only send a notification if there was a "Down" notification beforehand
  • or add a corresponding additional trigger option.
