Nagios XI - Set BPI priority in Hostgroup/Servicegroup .cfg

Postby yo_marc » Thu Oct 24, 2019 7:34 am

Feature request / Idea: Have the ability to set the BPI priority within a Hostgroup or Servicegroup config.

Reason / Use-case:

I have recently been working with Nagios XI's BPI component - I found the BPI functionality suits us best if I group high priority systems into Hostgroups, and then simply use the BPI sync feature to import them into the tool. (I find manual BPI configs can easily get broken on our rather large 1000-host system). I have a lot of other hostgroups, so to make these important ones stand out, I raised their priority to 'high' so that they could be seen on the first page of the BPI component. Today, I noticed that these priorities were reset. I had to go back in and reset them to 'high' again. A little time consuming in our large BPI config.

I think it would be nice if we could in some way set this priority in the Hostgroup (or Servicegroup), and just let the BPI sync take care of the rest.
