New Resources Status (previously Events view)
Thanks to feedback on the previous version 20.04, we added the missing features before making this view the default.
This view is accessible directly from
Monitoring > Resources Status and
brings the following capabilities:
- A unified page that regroups host & service resources in one single place for a unified events management
- Regexp search based on multi-criteria and the possibility to force the search on a specific criteria (host name, host alias, host address, service description)
- Multi-criteria search based on multi-selects
- Possibility to save and manage your filters
- Inline & massive quick actions: acknowledgement, set a planned downtime, re-check a resource, submit a result, etc.
- Detail information on the side of the listing, to quickly access information and not losing what you were currently looking at such as: objects details information, events timeline, associated performance graph and shortcuts.

- Discovery result can also be automatically processed to add, disable and when necessary re-enable the hosts in the configuration.
- If you decide to manually add the hosts from the job's result page, the mapping rules can now be edited and saved from this page to match your needs by applying the rule directly on the result.
- The new exclusion and inclusion mappers will help you decide which hosts are meant to be added in the configuration, and the ones that should be disabled or enabled.
