Using OID values as. "Location" for decvice.



Location for Geo Maps is a static value. Adresse or GPS Values... I have a nice mobile router returning Latitude and Longitude values in 2 different OID Strings. How do I make this data the "location" string. OR create a custom URL using these Values

there is no option in PRTG to do this automatically. The idea would be to write a script, creating a list of the devices of PRTG, reading OID values (the free NetSNMP library can be used for that) and then using the PRTG API to overwrite the location property.

We document said API [https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/application_programming_interface_(api)_definition|here]. I am not aware of a premade script.
