I'm creating a map and have added Status Icons for several sensors

I'd like to be able to click on the Status icon and be taken to the PRTG page for that sensor

Is there a variable I can use in the html, so that I don't have to go and find out the id for each sensor?

I currently have something like this?

htmlbefore: <a http://my-prtg/sensor.htm?id=24038> htmlafter: </a>

This article applies to PRTG Network Monitor 12 or later, as well as to previous (deprecated) versions

Adding 'Deep Links' to Status Icons in Maps

In this case you would need to create your own map object.

  • Duplicate the map object of your choice in the /webroot/mapobjects subfolder of your PRTG installation. (Note: In versions previous to PRTG 13.2.3, the folder is /website/mapobjects.)
  • Open the file in a text editor
  • Change the name of map object by editing the first line
  • find the placeholder for "htmlbefore"
  • Insert your link code: <a href="/sensor.htm?id=<@objectid>">
  • find the placeholder for "htmlafter"
  • Insert the end of the <a> tag: </a>

The "htmlbefore"&"htmlafter" solution is the right way to go.

I can see that this works, but I have to find out the sensorid for each sensor, so I can put this in the hyperlink.

If I am adding a large number of Status Icons, this will be a pain and prone to error

Is there a variable that I can use in the href so that it will automatically point to the sensor for that Status Icon?

This works perfectly using the web browser

<#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">
<a href="/sensor.htm?id=<@objectid>">
<#mapobject type="htmlafter" subid="<@subid>">
</a>

However, the links do not appear to work within the Windows GUI

This is not really a problem for me, but should it work?

Thanks.

I think the web browser inside the Windows GUI does not support navigation, sorry.
