Creating a geo view

Create a GeoView​

A user that is a Centreon admin, or a Centreon Map admin or has right to create view can create geographic views using the web interface, to do so:

  1. Go to Monitoring > Map and click on the "+" on the Geographic section.
  2. You're asked to give a name to the view and then to define resources to display on the view.
  3. After configuring these parameters, resources will appear on this geographic view


The following resources can be displayed on a GeoView:

  • Hosts belonging to hostgroup(s)
  • Business Activity belonging to Business View(s)
  • One or multiple Hostgroup(s)

Pre-requisites: Define lat/long coordinate in the resources configuration form for host, hostgroups or business activity.

Example with a host:


How access control limitation (ACL) are handled​

As soon as you give access to Monitoring > Map or to a custom view containing a Map widdget, GeoViews are accessible to every Centreon user. A user will only see resources he is authorized to see, based on his ACL profile.

How resources are displayed​

When a resource (host, hostgroup or a business activity) is positionned on a geoview, it's displayed as a circle which colored is defined using the following rules:

  • Host: worst state between the host and its services
  • Hostgroups: worst state of hosts belonging to the hostgroups
  • Business activity: current status

Worst state order: Critical (red) > Down (red) > Warning(orange) > Unknown(gray) > Unreachable(gray) > Ok(green) > Up(green) > Pending(blue)


When multiple resources are geographically close and you are at "certain" zoom level, then they're grouped into one single circle displaying two things:

  • Status of the worst object (displayed as a color between green, orange, red and gray)
  • Number of resources in this state


This behavior can be disabled in the global Centreon Map parameters

Blinking resources​

If a resources is in a "not-ok" state, it blinks.

This behavior can be disabled in the global Centreon Map parameters
