imo - you should look outside of a configuration tool, and more into automating it. this can be done with templates / grouping in Nagios, hooked into automation tools such as chef, or ansible - then served with github for source control.

the tools help initially, but if you're configuring each service one by one, i'd hope you're in a smaller environment....or that sounds very, very, painful.

Nagios makes working in dynamic environments very fluid with all of the control of variables / "macros" across the board, as well as the ability to store state date.

I'll also, add a shameless plug, the absolute best GUI based configuration comes built into Nagios XI, including easy wizards, and advanced configuration modification.

And current version of Nagios XI used Nagios Core 4.2.4 as it's monitoring engine

NagiosQL 3.3.0 supports Nagios Core 4.x with "forward compatibility" - excluding the "importance" and "service parents" extension.

Upcoming NagiosQL 3.4.0 will support all Core 4.x configuration options. Development of 3.4.0 is closed, we are in test.

NagiosQL 3.4.0 is now available. The software can be obtained on the following page:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/nagiosql

The new version has been completely revised and now follows the latest programming guidelines according to PSR1/PSR2 standards. Several small bugs have been fixed. Nagios 4.x is now fully supported.

Unfortunately, the old translators are no longer available, so only German and English are 100% translated.

Help with further development is always welcome. Translators can register at https://www.transifex.com/wizonet/nagiosql/
The source code is available at https://gitlab.com/wizonet/nagiosql/tree/3.4.0

Please enter bug reports as an issue on the GitLab page. Hotfixes are also always provided there.
