Nagios XI - Understanding User Macros

Understanding User Macros

This document describes how to implement and use user macros in a working environment. This is useful for users who want to obfuscate sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, etc. User macros are helpful in specifying paths to plugins and event handlers. In addition, user macros allow strings with illegal characters (Such as ! and $) to be used in the Core Configuration Manager.
