220.127.116.11 Bulk Edit Example: How to Bulk Edit Multiple Hosts
In this example we
want to add the Host template ‘Application –HTTP’ to 10 of our Hosts. To do
this, first we need to click on ‘Bulk edit’ within the ‘Settings > Hosts
Settings’ window. This button is located on the top task bar, to the right of
the ‘Add New’ button.
Click on the ‘Bulk edit’ button
Once we have clicked
the Bulk Edit button, the modal window will appear. In the right hand section
is a searchable list of all the Hosts within the Opsview Monitor system. At the
top is a free-text search box, and at the bottom is a label displaying the
number of Hosts currently selected. In our example we are going to select 10 Hosts
that have the word ‘opsera’ in their Host Title, as shown below:

As you can see from

list of our Hosts. We have then selected 10 Hosts by checking the checkbox next
to the Hosts. Finally, the counter at the bottom of the list has automatically updated to
reflect the number of Hosts selected.
Next, we will
configure the Host templates option. First, we will click the checkbox next
to ‘Host Templates’ which enables the relevant drop-down menus. Next, we will select ‘Add to
existing’ (as we want to add a new Host template), and finally we will select
the ‘Application –HTTP’ Host template from the drop-down menu (below
the ‘actions’ drop-down menu):

To apply the changes,
click on the ‘Reload’ button which will navigate through to ‘Settings >
