See current settings of a map item



Is there any way to get the device and properties from an item on a map?

e.g. click on the item and find "This is a Status Icon > Primary Channel Gauge Small" and the data is coming from "Server Group 2 > Server 4 > Custom Probe > Channel 4" ?

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm afraid this is currently a limitation in PRTG indeed, it can't be easily discerned, which Map Object was used, and also which device/sensor it is displaying. We do have this on our list. Please bear with us, and consider your vote counted!

best regards.
