To avoid this, always deploy templates by drag/dropping then onto the Auto Configuration node, as illustrated below. Dropping templates onto the Group or Resource node will result in all Static monitors.
If you have inadvertently generated a monitoring tree of all Static monitors, there are two ways to delete the Statics and reconstruct the tree with Auto monitors.
The easiest way is to right-click, delete the Resource directly under the Group node. Restart the probe and deploy a fresh copy of that resource. In this new resource, deploy your preferred templates onto the Auto Configuration node. Restart the probe.
The second method takes a few more steps. In the probe GUI, select All Monitors. Extended select the entire list on the right side, delete. Restart the probe promptly and deploy your templates as described herein. This method preserves your login credentials, which may be hidden to you.
