Manage maps in MAP

This topic provides information about how to perform actions on your maps from the Centreon MAP interface. You can create two types of map:

  • Standard maps: to view graphical representations of your monitored infrastructure.
  • Geographic views: to display the resources of your IT environment across a defined geographical area.

Options that are available in the MAP interface depend on the permissions assigned to you by your administrator. See the Manage access rights on MAP topic to know more about rights and permissions.

The display of the Add a Map button or Add a Geographic view button means that you are allowed to create a map and that you belong to an access group that is granted the creator role.

Map status information​

The homepage displays the list of existing maps and, for each map, you can view the worst status of all resources or containers included in the map.
