    1. Navigate to Administration > Service Management > Custom Services.
    2. Click Add > Service > SNMP.
  2. Specify the appropriate settings:
    1. On the Queries tab, click Add and enter a Query Name.
    2. Click the Let the Agent/Probe get the SNMP Index by querying an OID with a specific value: radio button.
    3. Select the Enabling editing of this field in MSP N-central check box.

    4. Save your changes.
