Status: Resolved (closed on 2013-11-20 16:20:51 +00:00)
Target Version: 1.11
Last Update: 2013-11-20 16:20:51 +00:00 (in Redmine)


If macros (e.g. $SERVICEDESC$) are contained in the notes url (a common occurrence...)
they are not expanded, and the Links are useless.

see #1883 - the idoutils do not dump the processed macro string, but the plain string. the cgis call themselves the shared marco fetching functions which are not really possible for a database based solution. better attempt would be to insert that into the database via data output.

I think this should be done in idoutils, as it should provide an abstract interface for icinga data and should hide (data storage) implementation details like macro expansion from developers. We (and other people using the db) would have to care which macros exists, where they occur, how they are resolved and constantly check if there are new macros. I would really appreciate if we could solve this in the idoutils.

I only see this as being a problem for dynamic macros (e.g. $TIMET$).

But we could live without the time macros being updated.

Of course it would be nice if custom macros were dynamically expanded,
because we could alter them with the CHANGE_CUSTOM_HOST_VAR command - but since
this doesn't work with the classic interface either, it's not a big problem.

I have a strong suspicion though that macros aren't available to the core at the point the configs are dumped :-(

grabbing the macros on dump will add more complexity and wait time on the actual insert/update then. this cost remains too high, especially when you run the core with gprof - most likely you will see that the macro grabbing is one of the most run.

1.8 is here soon and we don't have a good solutiion for this yet, so I'll pospone to 1.9.

consider it as a todo when we start digging around icinga2's api. i doubt that the current 1.x framework will support that due to the lack of performance.
