  • As a user I want to overwrite global shared icinga-web configuration from installed modules (e.g. cronks).

Maybe this could be done with a single module included last.

hm. does this imply another config change to the existing ones? is the upgrade path clear?

No config change. Problem is alphabetical order of modules, e.g.

  • etc/conf.d/cronks.xml is included by Module/Cronks
  • Module/Reporting for example creates a cronk by base config
  • You want to disable it means actually:
    • Cronk would be locally disabled by Module/Cronks
    • Overwritten by Module/Reporting
    • Cronk is always available

Quick fix is to disable the cronk in app/modules/Reporting/config/cronks.xml but this is not update safe.

Conclusion is to create a simple module (e.g. Config) which is initialized last in chain to include all shared configuration and allow overwriting all previous created default configuration.

Kind regards,

ok, so a global config master, being opt-in for those needing it.

please make sure to keep it documented (wiki) as well as tell wolfgang about the changes for the install icinga web section on docs.icinga.org

The change is transparent, configurations stay the same only include order changes to work like user expected.
