User access to specific sensors



I need a way for a user to login and be able to see only select sensors from a device that is not in their group.

I have a core router that houses multiple customers. Each customer interface is a sensor on the router. I would like to be able to give each user access to their sensor, without them seeing other customer interfaces.

It appears that PRTG is device driven, so I am not sure this is possible.

You can create separate groups for those customers then put those users into those groups and at the root level, give them no access. Then you can go to the specific sensors you want them to see and change their group's permissions to allow them to see specific sensors only. Make sure to make the user groups and users read only though so they can't change anything to allow them access.
