PRTG Manual: Object Selector

For some features, you need to select an object, for example, when you want to create historic data reports. In this case, PRTG uses the object selector with which you can browse all objects in your installation to select an object in two steps.

Step 1: Browse Device Tree

On the left-hand side, you see your specific device tree setup with all probes, groups, and devices. Click b_map_designer_collapse to collapse an object. Click b_map_designer_expand to expand the object again and show its subobjects.

Click a device to view its sensors on the right-hand side.

You can also directly search for an object in the device tree. To do so, enter a probe name, group name, or device name into the Search box on the left-hand side. You can also use a substring for the search.

Step 2: Select or Find Object

Select a device on the left-hand side to see the sensors on this device on the right-hand side. PRTG displays the name of the sensor as well as the sensor type. Hover over a sensor to view its parent objects.

You can also directly search for a sensor in the sensor list. To do so, enter the sensor name, group name, device name, or tag into the Find box on the right-hand side.

Select a sensor and click OK.
