Hashtags can also be
used with notifications. In the example above we tagged various objects
with the Hashtag ‘SUPERIMPORTANT’. This was to limit Users access; we may also
want to notify those Users regarding problems only on Hosts/Service Checks that
have been tagged with ‘SUPERIMPORTANT’.
This is more
prevalent in an environment with multiple customers or multiple business units.
If you have multiple customers logging into and using Opsview Monitor, you
should tag all of their objects (Hosts/Service Checks) with a unique Hashtag,
Then, for access
control, you should create a new Role called ‘Finance Global Capital’ that
limits Users to only being able to view objects tagged with
‘#financeglobalcapital’. You should then create Users for Sysadmins of Finance
Global Capital and assign them the ‘Finance Global Capital’ Role. That solves
the security requirements.
For those Users in
the ‘Finance Global Capital’ Role, you can then create and assign a shared
notification profile that only notifies them when a problem occurs on objects
tagged with ‘#financeglobalcapital’.
