Even though Configure makes it easy for you to add and change the configuration of op5 Monitor it is still a lot of things to edit and tweak. To make the software even more easy to use templates have been built in.
There are three types of templates to use:
- host templates
- service templates
- contact templates
op5 Monitor comes with a couple of predefined templates for each object type described above. They are just there to be examples and you should really create your own.
How they work
- Any directive set in a template will be used in the objects using the template. But if you set a directive explicit on an object that value will override the templates.
- Any directive not set in neither a template or directly on the object will have the op5 Monitor default value.
- If you change any value on a directive in a template it will only be valid on the objects where the same directive is not set explicit.
