Map-Object - Channels of a Sensor - with only specific channels




I am not sure if this topic is already answered somewhere else, but is there a way to only show specific channels of a sensor in a table?

I know that you can create custom map-objects like graphs and with hide="Channel ID, Channel ID,..." to only show specific Channels of a Sensor.

As Example I copied the Mapobject <!--Data Tables: Channels of a Sensor--> and tried to hide some of the channels, but couldn’t figure it out.

I don't want to generally hide the channel vie the "Table Rendering" settings of the Channel. I only want to show the most important channels of some sensor (one table per sensor) in one map.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, the "hide" parameter is not available for data tables. You can test this with the following call:


Best regards.

Hi Dariusz,

i thought so, but is there any other way to only show specific channels of a sensor in a table?

Many thanks in advance

Dear Jacqueline,

that is not possible with an API call or map object. A graph offers the feature to hide channels, which can be used interactively as well. But a table does not have this feature anywhere in PRTG and is therefore also not offered via the API or map object. The only way here would be to setup a factory sensor, mirroring the needed channels and then use this sensor in the PRTG map.
