Hello Tomasz,
thank you for your follow up.

You're correct, we haven't been able to release this yet but it was implemented and will be included with PRTG 16.3.26 and upwards. Just make sure to keep your PRTG up-to-date and keep an eye on the release notes for new features and changes.


Best Regards,

Hello Tomasz, we appreciate your contact.

I'm not sure I understand what you're requesting. the User Groups as listed in the (config_report_users.htm) presents exactly the same information as the "User Groups" view (/systemsetup.htm?tabid=6). May I ask that you elaborate?

Please also note that the "primary" group is merely a formality, there's no difference between a group member and an user's primary group.

Best Regards,

I am aware that "primary group" is a kind of fiction and I wonder if you shoud keep it - it creates a confusion, but that's not the point. In /systemsetup.htm?tabid=6 I can't see users in a column "Members" assigned to a group which is their primary group. If I click that group I can see in its properties this user on a Primary Users list.

To me it looks that only members (but not primary members) are displayed in Members column of /systemsetup.htm?tabid=6 or User & Groups Configuration Report. For User perspective reporting everything is fine - both primary and membership groups are displayed correctly.

Hello Tomasz,
thank you for the clarification.

Yes, I've observed the described behavior and I definitively agree that this is "somewhat confusing" to say the least. I will bring this to developments attention and expect that we're able to resolve this, but at the moment I'm unable to confirm whenever we'll be able to fix this or the ETA for the fix.

Best Regards,
