The grey search bar can be used to filter the information presented via filters:

  • Object used to filter on object name (host, service, contact, SNMP trap definition, group, etc.)
  • User used to filter by change author
  • Object Type used to filter by object type

Practice​

E.g.: To see all the actions effective by the user: admin, enter β€œadmin” in the User field and click on Search.

The table below defines the columns in the results table:

  • Enabled: Indicates that the object has been enabled
  • Disabled: Indicates that the object has been disabled
