In Map Designer can it be automated to add a link to the sensor



I'd like to be able to click on sensors or graphs in the Map View that take me to that exact sensor. I know i can do this with an external link, or by adding code to the map manually, but would it be possible to have a checkbox that activates the link for that sensor.

So the behaviour of this KB: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/3763-how-can-i-add-deep-links-into-prtg-s-interface-for-map-status-icons, but with the ease of a checkbox.

Hi there,

I'm afraid that there is no option to add a checkbox neither is there a checkbox to choose a sensor for the hyperlink. Improvements for the map designer are on our Road Map, but we cannot tell any ETA for when this will make it into our PRTG Network Monitor I'm afraid.

Kind regards,
