"Administration" link/feature missing in Nagios

Postby mbottos1 » Mon May 01, 2017 12:02 pm

Hello,
at a previous job, we had a Nagios installation that had this really wonderful feature that allowed us to edit configuration files through the GUI.
There would be a link called "Administration" and from there you could add all of the hosts, commands, alerts, etc....
I thought this was a default feature on Nagios, but now Ive arrived to a new company with seemingly the same version of Nagios Core and this feature does not appear to exist and I am trying to change that.

Could anyone help me identify this plugin or Nagios version? I've attached a screenshot of my current Nagios version and doodled in the "administration" link to give an idea of what it looked like.

I'm not familiar with any particular mod that does that, but here's some links to popular configuration management tools:

Hey thanks for the link, much appreciated.

Does anyone else happen to know of the mod I am looking for? Hate to spend sometime with another plugin only to find its not what I am looking for.
Thanks!

How many hosts are you checking? The free version of Nagios XI might work for you: https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nag ... -Linux.pdf

I'm not aware of any add-ins that do exactly what you are describing. If you have friends at your old employer, perhaps they could let you know. I'd certainly like to know!
