Use library-filtering on maps.



Some object on maps supported Group, Device and sensors from device tree with drag-and-drop function. For some map objects i can use tags (for ex. tables) if i edit original *.htm element. Can i use tags with another maps elements for ex. Device Tree View or Status Donuts or Warning sensors, can i somehow apply tags to them for filtering exactly sensor or device?

Dear Vasiliy,

Thank you very much for your contact.

Can you please more precisely with your request, which will allow me to better comprehend the situation described. To which map objects do you refer in this case?
If I'd go with my gut, I assumed that it is not possible and required a custom map object which is not supported.

Anyways, please elaborate your request and we'll see what's possible.

Best regards,

Sorry, yes.

I want:
1) Create a Library with sensors "Ping" + "CPU Load" + "Memory" from several network devices.
2) Create a Map, add object "Device Tree Views" -> Sunburst view on this Map, and apply this Library to this View.

And get sunburst view only for my Library as result.
This possible?
