Tips For Customising Configuration Wizards

Tips For Customising Configuration Wizards.pdf

Nagios XI comes with built in Configuration Wizards that allow you to monitor a host with little effort.

You may have a handful of services that you would like to add to a Configuration Wizard so you do not have to manually create them after the Configuration Wizard has been run. It is easy to modify an existing Configuration Wizard to include your customisations.

You can also create your own Configuration Wizard once you have understood the how a Configuration Wizard works.

This document is a guide of tips to help you achieve this. This document is a work in progress so some sections may not be complete or 100% correct.

Great documents! I'll make sure the other members of my team see them.

On a related note I've been working on streamlining the Wizard creation process. I've factored a lot of the common code into a sharable form, so the Wizard looks bigger then it is and hopefully this code can be merged into XI.

I hope this style is useful to every one and if you write any classes, like radio/list/pulldown/ect, please submit them for inclusion.

I should note that I'm mew to PHP and some of these concepts were vary difficult to implement *correctly, I'm sure there is room for improvement but I've reached the limit of what I am able to do with PHP. I'm looking to be mentored further in the art of PHP, as I'm coming form perl and C,not C++. This is my first time writing objects, I'd have rather used procedural syntax, though this was the only way to get multiple scopes.

* In a way where they would compile and run as expected.

A note about my note. Today I'm going to work on creating Objects for a handful of other input elements. Looking at the list there are quite a few and for some of them like "file" or "image" I don't necessarily want to work out the details of how it would be used currently. Others like submit, button, and reset I can't discover what they would be doing in a configwizard.

These new additions sound great. I'll have have a look soon at the attachment.

Work is busy at the moment, not much time left for other interests :cry:

Wish I could help you with the PHP stuff ... my skills lie in butchering someone else's code :lol:
