MAP Associated Link



How is the new Associated Link in the latest version of PRTG 9 different than the HTML before and After fields that are present in numerous objects in the map editor? Does this feature allow you to override a default link that may already be present in an object?

Dear John,

it's just a field to make it easier to enter a link. You can now easier select an object (sensor, device, group, etc.) in PRTG to which a certain map object is supposed to link to, or enter an external link to an external page ('http://www.google.com', please make sure to use 'http' at the beginning) without need HTML-Knowledge.
It's not related to HTML After/Before, this can be used in separate.

best regards.
