Disable editable Gauges in Maps



When I add a Primary Channel Gauge to a Map and view the map via the Public Access URL you can edit the Gauge Settings by clicking on it. Can this be turned off? And you cannot set an external Link to it. Is this a bug?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. Which exact version of PRTG are you running? We cannot reproduce both issues here so far. On a public map (without being logged in) no changes are possible on such a gauge (no channel settings can't be changed, the popup does not appear). Only if the user is already logged in and views the public map in the same browser then this happens.

best regards.

sorry it was my fault. I was still logged in.

Opened it in another Browser and everything worked fine.

Thank you!
