show values from "message"



Hello, I would like to create a dashboard/map which has a listing of servers that I want, and show values from 1 or more sensors. However, the value that I want is the "message" value and not the response value of that sensor.

message sensor value

Hi there,

For this we have the "Sensor (message only, transparent background)" and "Sensor (message only, default background)" objects within the map designer under "Status Icons". have you checked that?

Best regards.
