Bulk Printing QR Codes in PRTG

PRTG offers a hidden feature which allows you to display QR codes of all devices at glance. You can call a corresponding page suitable for printing by adding certain parameters to the URL of your PRTG installation. It is also possible to call a page showing only QR codes of devices within a specific group or probe. In addition, the size of the QR codes on this page is adjustable to your needs.

Important notice: Please note that this is a hidden feature. We cannot guarantee that it will be forever working the way as denoted below.

Calling a Page with Printable QR Codes

Log in to your PRTG installation. Add parameters to the IP address/DNS name of your PRTG server as pointed out below.

  • In order to call a page containing the QR codes of all devices on your PRTG installation, add devices-qr.htm to the URL: https://yourprtgserver/devices-qr.htm
  • In order to show only QR codes of devices within a specific group or probe, add the corresponding ID to the URL: https://yourprtgserver/devices-qr.htm?id=group_or_probe
  • Alternatively, you can go to a device list via the main menu (choose Devices | Device List >) and simply add -qr between devices and .htm in the current URL. This is also possible when you are on the Favorite Devices page: https://yourprtgserver/devices-qr.htm?filter_favorite=1
  • You can adjust the size of the displayed QR codes by providing according parameters for width, height, and margin. The following units are possible:
Parameter in URLUnit
em1em is equal to the current font size. 2em means two times the size of the current font. E.g., if an element is displayed with a font of 12 pt, then '2em' is 24 pt. The 'em' is a very useful unit in CSS, since it can adapt automatically to the font that the reader uses
exone ex is the x-height of a font (x-height is usually about half the font-size)
ptpoint (1 pt is the same as 1/72 inch)
pcpica (1 pc is the same as 12 points)
  • Add the desired units as parameters to the URL, connected with ampersands. For example: https://yourprtgserver/devices-qr.htm?id=group_or_probe&width=150px&height=150px&margin=50px
