Dear Bennygiebens,

Thank you very much for your knowledge base post.

By default, PRTG does not offer the CURRENT ALAMRS and OPEN TICKETS dashboard as map object, but I will describe you how to create this object.

Save the following code as welcome_box.htm and store it in PRTG's program directory
\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\mapobjects.

<!--Welcomebox: Welcomebox-->

<div class="map_object map_table" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="<@subid>" style="overflow:auto;<#mapobject type="coordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">">
  <#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>">
  <#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>">
  <#checkobjecttype objecttype="probenode,group,device" nicemessage="true"  id="<@objectid>">

  <div class="welcomebox refreshable" refreshurl="controls\welcome_currentalarms.htm"><#include file="controls\welcome_currentalarms.htm"></div>

<#mapobject type="htmlafter" subid="<@subid>">

Open the Map Designer in PRTG afterwards. Now, you should be able to choose the map object Welcomebox > Welcomebox from the Properties Tree on the right side.

Hi Sebastian

thanks this is great solution. Any way to change the size of the circle and change the color of the font?

Hello ryananiestyo,

Please note that as of PRTG 17.4.35 we officially don't support customization of map objects, the PRTG web interface or reports anymore.
For further background information and the reason for this decision, please see this knowledge base article.

Please excuse the inconvenience.

Best regards,
