status related background vs trafficlight class

Hi! How can I make the Status icon with status-related background ignore "acknowledged" and "paused" status?

I found quite a lot of useful things here, among them this post https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/70807-map-circle-object-with-status-related-background

it shows how to create a custom object (using SVG) that only shows red, yellow or green. (if I acknowledge and/or pause the sensor, the element switches back to "green" and not "pink" or "blue" (which is the behavior for the status icons)

So I tried to work with the "trafficlight" class a bit (which the example above uses) but there is one limitation.. it's SVG and you can not write on top of it. Only below or on top. Maybe I can't read the code well but I could not achieve what is shown in the example.

it would always come out like this:

We are using the status icons for our NOC dashboard for our remote probes and acknowledged and paused status is not relevant there, can you help me get rid of blue and pink and make the status tile behave like the circle in the example above? (following the traffic light) ?

I played with the CSS and made blue = green but I would prefer a more professional solution ;)

thanks!

Hi there,

If you want to customize map objects, please take a look at the following article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61263-where-can-i-find-custom-map-objects-and-other-map-customizations
As a side note, please refer to the following article which explains why we can't really offer any customization help for PRTG: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/78334-what-is-your-position-towards-customizing-the-prtg-web-interface
