When you first install Centreon MAP, only Centreon administrators may configure ACLs.

Centreo Map handles ACLs by the ACL groups defined in Centreon. You cannot configure an ACL on user-by-user basis.

Add / remove new administrators

You can decide which ACL group contains Centreon MAP administrators.

Go to Preferences > Preferences then select Admin.


Assign specific rights to certain users

You can allow ACL groups to create, modify or delete views from the desktop client.

Go into Preferences > Preferences and then select Views > ACLs.


Select, from the list, the ACL group you want to configure. Then, for each view, define the specific rights to attribute.

Loading / unloading disabled resources

You can decide whether to load disabled resources into Map. If you do (which is the default configuration), all disabled resources will appear in the resource list. You will also be able to use them in your maps.

They will have no status and appear as shown in the following screenshot:


You can change this result by editing the /etc/centreon-studio/ file and adding the following line:



Be sure to restart the Centreon MAP server after modifying the configuration files (systemctl restart tomcat).

Changing inherited status calculation

You can decide whether to include in planned downtime and acknowledged elements in the calculation of inherited status. By default, all statuses are included. You can also choose to exclude hosts and services whose severity level is above a given value.

To make any changes you must edit the Centreon MAP server configuration file:

vim /etc/centreon-studio/

Then add the following lines at the end of the file:

drilldown.useHardState = false
drilldown.ignoreElementInDowntime = true
drilldown.ignoreElementAcknowledged = true
drilldown.ignoreSeveritySuperior = 10

Now, if the status of a service is critical but is acknowledged, downtime, or of a severity level above 10, the inherited status of the host will be OK.


Be sure to restart the Centreon MAP server after modifying the configuration files (systemctl restart tomcat).

Highlighting problems


This property will only apply to the user who modifies it on the desktop client.

You can change the size of elements according to their status as a way of highlighting a problem. This only works when elements are expressed in the geometric style.


To use this feature, edit the Status size properties in the desktop Preferences. Go to Status > Status size to configure it globally or to Views > Status > Status size to configure it at the view level.
