Geo Maps Tag/Filter Not working (unless I misunderstand?)



Your Vote:



We're using PRTG Network Monitor, with MapQuest & Openstreetmap. I've created a new Map, on which I want to display a Geo Map showing all devices in a group.

I've created a Device Group which is configured already with all the devices/sensors I wish that are tagged.

I've created a new Map, from clean, and thrown a Geo Maps object on to it. When I filter by the tags I want, I'm being shown all devices that have locational information configured. My tags seem to be ignored.

Yet, when I view the Group collection, I see a perfect example of the Geo Map I'm wanting to create. Suggesting my knowledge of the Tag system is not quite right, or I don't have it configured correctly.

My group has the tags 'sccm-distributionpoints' My device(s) have the tags 'distributionpoints' and My sensor(s) have the tags 'pingsensor'

I've tried a few things, but regardless, other devices that have location information entered, are showing. (none of these devices have tags like I've filtered by so I'm confused)

Any ideas?

Resolved, I'd created a 'Root' object. Not a 'Group' object...!
