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.
ich habe meine .png Datein unter iconset7 & iconset8 hinzugefügt, leider werden mir die Rubriken nicht im Editor angezeigt.
Was muss ich tun damit sie mir angezeigt werden.
It maybe displayed as iconset9 or iconset10 in the PRTG map designer interface here.
If it isn't displayed, I would recommend to restart the core server, so the files are loaded anew.
