NagMap and Google Maps

Google has recently changed its API access policies; since June 11, 2018, the use of the API private key has been mandatory.

In NetEye’s NagMap application, access to the Google Maps data has thus stopped, resulting in error alerts like this:

In order to gain access to Google Maps data, you must obtain an API Key as described here:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/get-api-key

Then NagMap must be told to use the newly generated key, which you can do by editing the following file:

/var/lib/neteye/plugins/nagmap/config.php

Just add a line before the PHP closing tag  ?> as shown below

// Use Clustering of Markers feature
$use_cluster_markers = 1;
$cluster_markers_gridSize = 20;
$cluster_markers_maxZoom = 15;

$API_KEY=”key=xXXxxxXXXxxx-XXXxxxXXXxxXXXXxx”;

?>

If you need specific help either to create the API key, or to configure NetEye to use it, feel free to contact our Support Team at: net.support@wuerth-phoenix.com

We are sorry to depend  so heavily on the Google API.  We will work out a better solution in the near future.
