New Features & Improvements
Data field categories | Data Fields and Data Lists in Icinga Director serve to organize conventions and workflows. With Icinga Director v1.8 it is now possible to additionally categorize data fields.
New property modifiers | Importing data from any kind of data source and transforming it into valid Icinga configuration is one key aspect of the automation capabilities of Icinga Director. Property modifiers enable users to modify the imported data before creating Icinga configuration out of it. Version 1.8 comes with new property modifiers.
Sync Rule updates | With Sync Rules the Director decides how to merge new data with existing configuration. A new update policy, called “update only”, allows to only update existing configuration with new properties without creating or deleting any monitoring objects at the same time.
Icinga for Windows | As Icinga for Windows is growing with each release, it was about time to add it to Icinga Director as well. With this release of Icinga Director users get the option to copy&paste a simple PowerShell snipped into their Windows machine which will install and add the Icinga agent to their current monitoring environment.
Download & Docs
The new Director version requires the Director daemon to be running. Previous versions suggested this as best practice already, now the daemon is mandatory. Additionally users will have to upgrade some libraries. Instructions to upgrade to icinga Director v1.8 can be found in the Upgrading Documentation. More information about this release is available in the Icinga Blog.
