PRTG includes hundreds of map icons for use in maps. I want to add my own custom image (our corporate logo). How can I do this?
This article applies to PRTG Network Monitor 19 as well as to previous (deprecated) versions
Use Your Own Images in PRTG Maps
You can use any browser-compatible image in PRTG maps (file format PNG, JPG, or GIF).
Simply copy your file(s) into one of the following two subfolders in your PRTG program directory:
The next time you add a new map item in the Map Editor, select one of the newly added tabs from the tab control and choose your new icons.
Note: In versions previous to PRTG 13.2.3, the folders are website\mapicons\iconset7 and website\mapicons\iconset8.
- This feature requires PRTG 8 or later.
- If you want to use these objects (in this case, images) in a map on a cluster, you must copy the new map objects to the other nodes manually.
Great, thank you. I will give it a try and advise if there are any problems.
I put my personal PNG images in webroot\mapicons\iconset7\ and also in webroot\mapicons\iconset8\. But in map designer, I find them and I can add them only as "static" icons. I expected that one folder was for "live" and the other was for "static" icons.
How can make them "live" (associated to any object/sensors)? have they respect some limits (dimensions, number of colours, etc..)?
You'll need to create a new map object with e.g. a status related background.
Go to the folder <PRTG Installation Directory >\webroot\mapobjects and create a new .htm file with the content
<!--Status Icons: Status Related Background--> <div class="map_object map_icon2 map_icon_large <#sensor type="colorclassofstate" prefix="map_iconcolor_" id="<@objectid>">" id="<@itemid>" objectid="<@objectid>" subid="<@subid>" style="<#mapobject type="coordinates" subid="<@subid>" mode="<@editmode>">"> <#mapobject type="objectgrip" mode="<@editmode>"> <#mapobject type="htmlbefore" subid="<@subid>"> <img src="/images/test.jpg"> <#mapobject type="htmlafter" subid="<@subid>"> </div>
Then copy the image to the folder webroot\images and replace the
with the name of the image.
The object will be available in the Map Editor > Status Icons > Status Related Background.
There's a guide/more details on this topic.
