Abiquo uses Google Maps for the map display, which requires the server to have Internet access. The map view is optional and statistics can be shown instead. In new installations, the map view is the default for Infrastructure view. In upgraded installations, to enable the map view, set the appropriate property in the client-config-custom.json file.

To plot the datacenter locations on the map, Abiquo uses the Google Maps Javascript API v3, and you cannot use a key for an older version.

Add the Google maps API key to the client-config-custom.json file as described below.
