Show alert and warning icons on public maps




I was wondering if it is any way to add the possibility to see alerts and warnings on created maps, when showing theese public maps on overview monitors in our admin environment? We are using the custom link from: Get html - OPTION 2: LINK TO A WEB PAGE THAT DISPLAYS THE MAP WITHOUT A LOGIN.

It is possible if you use a logged inn user, the you can see new log entries, alerts, warnings, up, paused and unknown sensors in the upper right corner of your created maps.

So the public maps show correctly and everything, the only thing missing from the map overview vs. a logged inn users view is the warning, alerts and so on icons.

Hi there,

You can use the "Name and Status" map objects under "Status Icons" to display the current alarms and warnings for the root group. Unfortunately, it is not possible to hide this for unauthenticated users. It is also not possible to display these information for authenticated users only.

Best regards.
