Device Tree View Resets with Read Only Accounts



When selecting view in my Device Tree with a Read Only account, the chosen view does not remain the default. This causes every subsequent reload of the page or refresh to revert the view to the default which is the smallest sensor size that is not summarized per device and it is impossible to read sensors in this view.

Can we change this default view somehow in the registry to the size one up from there? If not, is there something I am missing with read only accounts to allow this view to be saved properly?

Thank you very much for using PRTG. I'm sorry, page view settings are not saved for Read-Only users. This cannot be changed (also not with registry settings), nor are there plans to implement such changes for the time being. Sorry.

We can see though of course, if more users would like this, and then evaluate persistent page view settings for read only users again.

best regards.
