How Can I Define "per user Javascripts" in the AJAX WebGUI



I have found some nice scripts I would like to use:

But it does not feel right to decide that for each user.

So what do you think about a "add-ons" folder where I can put javascripts (with a description) in and a user can decide for itself to enable or disable such an add-on.

So I can disable the second column and my colleague is able to let it enabled.

I don't think we would implement such a feature soon, but here is a trick that can work:

Each user can select the refresh interval of the web interface (default is 30 seconds). Now you could add a custom script that enables/disables your desired scripts when the interval is set to 29 or 31 seconds. This will make not much of a difference in the usage, but enables you to define custom scripts.

Please find the file


in the


folder, open it in a text editor, paste the following code into it, and save the file:


	if (autoRefreshInterval==31) // do not show graphs on groups/probes/devices
		$('#tab-1[loadurl*="groupoverview"] td.col2').remove();

	if (autoRefreshInterval==32) // do not show graphs on groups/probes/devices AND hide help
		$('#tab-1[loadurl*="groupoverview"] td.col2').remove();

	if (autoRefreshInterval==33) // hide help


Now let your users select their refresh interval to be 30, 31, 32 or 33 seconds.
