Automation Device Rules

#1 Post by LdubSham » Fri Jul 13, 2018 4:50 am

Under automation devices, there are fields by which to match devices to add them to Cacti. There is however no way of templating how the name of the device should be defined. Currently it just defaults to the SNMP Sys Name.

It would be good if we had a way of defining device names using the variable method similar to data_source templates and graph templates. This would allow concatenation of fields like site name, SNMP Sys Name and some parsed model information into the device name field for example.

Many Thanks

I would open this as a request on the GitHub issues page. Sounds like a reasonable feature.
