Show only down and warning devices on custom Sunburst Map



I am trying to create a Map that shows a Sunburst view of devices with only Down and Warning sensors. The "devices sunburst sensors" is the map I am trying to edit, but I cannot figure out how to filter by sensor type. I am able to achieve this from the Devices tab but cannot seem to create a map for it.

custom-map sunburt xml

Hi Jason,

We do no longer provide support for custom objects or ui adjustments due to several reasons, but I try to bump you into the right direction, which might help you also in the future for coming up with further adjustments of your own.

Take map object "Sunburst hide paused" as a starting point, the related file would be "devices sunburst no paused.htm" located in PRTG's installation path, subfolder webroot\mapobjects, so create a differently named version of it and adjust the title in line 1 when opening with a text editor, so you can recognize it later.

Direct your attention especially to line 18 as it contains already a filter that leaves out the paused sensors and this filter can be extended: "filter":["paused","up","unusual","unknown"]

Kind regards,
