Add Own Map Designer Icon Group



Can anyone guide me on how to add my own icon group. I am customising a few of the data tables and would be nice to put these under my own group for quick selection rather than scrolling through all the ones i dont want plus with my own names just makes life a little more easier.

icons map prtg

Thank you for your message.

To have all your objects inside a custom group, I invite you to duplicate the corresponding map objects and modify the first line which looks like the following:

<!--Data Tables (Custom): DOWN Devices-->

The first part represents the name of the group to which the object belongs and the second the object's name. You will find all the objects on the PRTG server under "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\mapobjects".
