Configuration of sensor colours



Their needs to be a configuration option to change the colour of sensors. At the moment, those of us who are red-green colourblind like myself find it difficult to differentiate between the orange and green. The ability to tweak those colours to more suitable shades really needs to be there. From an accessibility standpoint, it is very poor and a massive oversight.

I know I'm not the first person to ask for this, so please can some serious consideration be made to implementing it?

PRTG doesn't support a mode for color blind persons in default. Since you can customize PRTG with css, you can change the colors (see here). Please note we don't offer official support for this since this feature is deprecated. However the styles_custom_v2.css file where you set these changes shouldn't be modified in a PRTG update, however we cannot guarantee this.

Kind regards
