I try to create a map where we can juste see sensors status for devices with the tag name "Liaison"

I go in map parameters and I see tag filter (or other name, my PRTG is in french) I write the name "Liaison", prtg find it but the map take all my devices not just named "Liaison"

I have forgot to do something ?

Thank you for your time and your help. :)

Hi Matthieu,

I think you have entered the Name and not the Tag of the devices you want to have visible in your map. Please check via the Device List, if you get the same result when you enter the name in the filter option under Show Filters.
If so, please give all the desired devices a meaningful Tag .To do this, open the settings of the desired device and enter a unique tag under Tags. Afterwards please check again, whether you now get the correct devices displayed in your map.

Kind regards
