Hey Guys

I want to embed the status (online/offline/..) of some sensors in an external intranet site. I searched in the web to find an answer but I didnt really found something. Can I realize this without API, or do I have to use API? I do not really know much about API so is there a detailed manual or something (the official API manual wasnt really helping me). Or is it also possible to use iframes or something like this?

Thank you for your answers. With kind regards, Ben

Hi there,

You can find the API Documentation within the Webinterface under "Setup > PRTG API".

What specifically is your plan? Please note that the API has a certain format which most likely has to be parsed via a JavaScript or via the Webapplication where you want to embed it.

Best regards.

How about creating your own map and embed it (in an iFrame) in your external website?

Hey, Yeah I have read this Documentation.

I have an intranet site, on which I want to show a green light if a sensor is ok, or a red light if the sensor is not okay. I found out, that I can get the status of a sensor into json while using /api/table.json?content=sensors&columns=objid,status&objid=1001. But I dont now how to use this in my intranet site. I have some expertise in html and css but I know almost nothing about php or javascript. I dont now how to parse this via JavaScript... Is there a documentation for this or do you have an idea how I can use this?

thanks for your answer

Hi there,

The answer from PRTGToolsFamily should help you to easily embed this information externally. :)

The key is basically using a public map which displays these information.

Best regards.
