Media are images used by the Centreon web interface. These images are used to represent the monitored resource in a more intuitive way, propose backgrounds for cartography modules, etc.

Image management

All the images are stored in the folder entitled: /usr/share/centreon/www/img/media of the Centreon server.

There are two methods for adding images to this folder:

  • Do it manually,
  • Use automatic synchronization. This method has the advantage of being able to import multiple images at the same time.

Manual addition

To add an image in Centreon, go to Administration > Parameters > Images and click Add.

The following window is displayed:


  • The Existing or new directory field can be used to add a new folder in the image folder or to choose an existing folder into which the image can be copied
  • The Image or archive field can be used to select the image or the set of images contained in an archive that will be imported
  • The Comments field can be used to describe the image

Synchronizing the images

To synchronize one or more images in the Centreon media:

  1. Copy your images in the image folder (the images may be located in folders).
  2. Make sure the user who executes your web server has the read rights on these images.
  3. Go to Administration > Parameters > Images.
  4. Click Synchronize Media Directory.

The following window imports the new images:
