  1. Get the monitor details using GET /monitors/{monitor_id} api
  2. Replace the notification_profile_id in the data received from GET API and do PUT /monitors/{monitor_id} api call
For bulk action, please use the following API commands:

PUT /monitors/bulk_action {
"monitors”:[“ReplaceMonitorIDHere”],
”bulk_action_type":2,
"notification_profile_id”:”ReplaceNotificationProfileIDHere”
}
