How can I determine what type of status icon or object a map object is using?



We go back in and edit map objects a lot. Today, if I edit a map in the map designer, I have no way to tell what type of status icon (the visual representation of the object) is being used for any map object. Nor can I tell what sensor/group/device object is represented in the display. This is a horrible deficiency. We have multiple map editors and person B cannot tell how person A set up a map object. This makes it a big guessing game if you want edit an existing object without destroying it.

Is there a way to tell how the existing object and icon settings for an existing map object? If not, this needs to be a new feature.

Hello there,

At the moment it is not possible to check in PRTG itself. The only way would be to check your Map would be to use the Developer Tools of your browser.

Kind regards
