A general app that logs in to your PRTG server cannot exist, as every installation is different with regards to IP address, protocol, port and credentials.


Although creating a Chrome app is not that hard to do (all need is a manifest.json file and an icon that are some kind of zipped with an extra header containing metadata), this is now really easy with the PTF.ChromeAppGen tool.


This tool asks for the url to your PRTG server, credentials you want to use and generates the app file. All you have to do is drag this file into your Chrome browser and you are only one mouse click away from logging into your PRTG server.
