Allow child groups, devices, and sensors to show what is being inherited from parent object.



View Hierarchy Settings on Child Objects Setting Page


Recently we have seen an issue with users who are not very familiar with our PRTG environment having to sift through several groups to see what settings have been applied for "Schedules, Dependencies, and Maintenance Windows".

I haven't seen an option to enable something like this in the existing PRTG software.

Possible Solution

It would be nice to be able to have the settings populate in the settings of each of the child objects as well as the parent object where the settings are populating from. This could appear grayed out when the "inherit from" is active.

This could also be applied for the other settings allowing the end user to know where the setting is configured and what the settings are at a glance rather than searching.
