Add a URL link to the status information

Postby stevenhmy » Sat Aug 31, 2019 8:27 pm

Is it possible to add a URL link to the status information column。
I try to write a simple perl script~
printf(" \<a href=test.html\>Click here to see test \</a\>")

but nagios shows like
20190901-1.jpg

Status information
Click here to see test

Thanks
Steven

This is not available in Nagios Core, but is an option in Nagios XI

You might be able to get a similar effect with notes for a particular host/service:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=48790&p=252672#p252672

I also get into modifying the source code to add custom elements to the status.cgi page:

Thank for your replies.
I did see someone using the hyperlink in the status information field of the nagios core V3.5. Just, I don't know how he does it. The result of my test, nagios does not Interpret the HTML , or What plug-in do I need to install?

Oh, you can edit the cgi.cfg
change this
Code: Select all
escape_html_tags=1

to this
Code: Select all
escape_html_tags=0
