Sensor error/warning limit values in map objects



Is it possible to reference the error/warning limit values for a sensor in a map object? Specifically I would want to get the values for:

Upper Error Limit
Upper Warning Limit
Lower Warning Limit
Lower Error Limit

I am working on a custom map object and I would like to add some color coding is the last value falls in the range of those limits. Thank you

Hi there,

Thank you for your post. I'm afraid there is no way to implement this within PRTG maps.

There is however a way to query the sensor limits with an API Call, maybe that already helps. Please find more information here.

Kind regards,
