Auto Login in Kiosk Mode

Hi,

I am trying to find a way to auto login to a PRTG account on my Raspberry Pi to act as a kiosk display. I have managed to configure Chromium to open the Maps I want in fullscreen mode and in Kiosk mode and it works perfectly fine. But after a reboot, the browser launches and PRTG asks me to sign in. Is there any way to save credentials and to allow it to automatically sign into a specific PRTG account I created?

Hi, I tried making all my maps Public and assigning the same secret key to each map as I would like it to display in a map rotation. This is my URL with the secret key redacted.

https://192.168.0.201/public/mapshow.htm?ids=2052,2053,2054,2055,2062,2047,2045&mapid=secretkey

But it still redirects to the login page. What exactly am I doing wrong here?

Hi,

the link should look like this at:

/public/mapshow.htm?id=MAPID&mapid=SECRETKEY

You will need to provide the ID of the map and the secret key.


Kind regards

Hi,

Sorry to come back to this but this did not work again. I want to display multiple maps in rotation with a single URL. Do I have to make each map unique with its own secret ID and then add them on the url like this:

/public/mapshow.htm?id=MAPID1&mapid=SECRETKEY&MAPID2&mapid=SECRETKEY&MAPID3&mapid=SECRETKEY

As I want to view 6 maps in rotation, the URL would be very long. Is there an easier way to do this?

Hi,

Please apology that I missread your first request and only shared the information for one map. If you want to create a map rotation the call should look like this:

public/mapshow.htm?ids=mapid1:secretkey1,mapid2:secretkey2,mapid3:secretkey3

There is also a manual page here.


Kind regards
