Users/Groups with access to specific devices



How can I configure users or groups to have access to specific devices or device groups only in the PRTG? So that they can see or configure only the devices and sensors in this group, but don't have access to devices on local probe or remote probes.

Hi Tobias,

Thank you for your message.

Individual users are organized in a nearly unlimited number of user groups. Each user group can separately have access rights for each individual object in your PRTG device tree. You'll find the option within the "Settings" tab of each object.

In addition, every user has specific rights: There are administrator users, read/write users, and read-only users. You can define these settings in "System Administration | User Accounts".

Please also see the following link to our manual for more information about setting up Access Rights for PRTG:

Kind regards,
