Can an RSS feed be embedded into a Paessler Map?



I would like to embed and RSS feed into a Paessler map, perhaps in a separate frame. The map would show the local network and an RSS feed from our service management systems with details of open incidents.

embed map rss

The easiest way would be to find a RSS2HTML service.

For example, you could use Jawfish. On their website, you can enter the target RSS feed URL, and they will give you an iframe code displaying the content of the RSS feed.

In your PRTG Maps Designer, you can paste this code into a Custom HTML object (HTML Before field). That's it.
