Add the new checks and tasks to the existing checks and tasks

Replace existing checks and tasks with those in the template in the event of duplicates

This option determines how Checks or Automated Tasks that are already running on the Agent should be handled in the event of duplicates in the Selected Templates.

Naming convention and Duplicate Automated Tasks

To identify existing Automated Tasks, the Descriptive Name entered in the Monitoring Template must precisely match the name of the Automated Task already assigned to the Device.

If the Descriptive Name does not match that already in use on the Device, i.e. it uses a different name or is left blank, a new Automated Task will be added to the Device.
