When you hover over map objects in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, a tooltip with the current identification and status of the object appears.

Customize tooltips for all map object types in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console to display additional information using alert variables, custom properties, and other text.

  • Tooltip customizations are global, and affect all maps.
  • Orion EOC does not support custom web console tooltips.
  • To enter a carriage return, use ${CR}. See Network Atlas tooltip variables for a list of available variables.
