Automation not creating graphs for data queries

#1 Post by RustedKnight » Tue Dec 03, 2019 7:57 am

I have a Cacti 1.2.7 deployment that we just started a couple weeks ago. We are working to create automation rules to get graph creation and tree creation working. We have the tree part of the automation working. We just can't seem to get the data queries to automatically create the graphs. Auto graph creation is selected in the settings. When we manually apply automation rules to a device it does build the graphs for data queries so the rules should be ok. Is there something else that needs to be turned on for the graph creation to work? Any suggestions on things to double check or potential problems?

First off, you should upgrade to the 1.2.8 (branch 1.2.x beta), the 1.2.7 release was a dud due to a major form related issue that can cause database corruption. Then, use the examples to kind of point you in the right way. There is also a general setting to enable automation rule execution. I suspect it's enabled by default, but you should double check.
