Add "parent service" support to CCM

Postby richelieu » Fri Dec 30, 2016 3:34 am

Hi,

in Nagios Core, "services now support a parents attribute. A service parent performs a function similar to host parents and can be used in place of service dependencies in simple circumstances" (citation from "what's new" for version 4).

I can not find how to configure this in CCM in Nagios XI. I suppose that support for this feature was not added to CCM yet.

As parent attribute in host definition is done through "Manage Parents" button, I suppose, that in case of services, it can be done the same way.

Do you plan to add support for this feature?

Regards,
Marek

What version of XI are you running? XI 5.4 added Core 4.2.4 as the backend. Earlier versions used Core 4.1.1, so it won't have access to the latest features.

5.4 also has important security fixes, so I would highly advise upgrading if you haven't already.

Hi,

thank you for reply, but the version of Nagios Core is not problem.
Nagios Core 4.1.1, that is used as background of my Nagios XI 5.2.9, already supports parents attribute in service definition.

Problem is CCM 2.5.2 that does not allow me to configure it.
A also checked changelog on https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... NGES-5.TXT, but I've not found information about adding this support to CCM.

Do you know if this will be/were added to CCM?

Regards,
Marek

Just so I am sure of what you want before I put in a feature request, I have attached screenshots of the service and the host management screens from CCM 2.6.3.

You would like us to add a "Manage Parents" button to the services page, correct?

Hi,

Thank you for adding feature request.
