Some of this interfaces are deprecated and replaced by the Resources Status page. This new page aims to regroup all the experiences you can find in these interfaces.

For new installations, deprecated pages are automatically hidden. It is possible to display them by selecting the option Use deprecated pages in the preferences specific to each user from the menu Administration > Parameters > My Account.

All links in Centreon will point to these pages: deprecated pages will become your main tool to visualize the state of hosts and services. However, if you enable this option, you will not benefit from the new features offered by the Resources Status page, such as for instance a more powerful search feature, the ability to customize and share views or to save filters, and any other future enhancements.
