0 - (default) propagate service status as is - without any changes;
1 - increase the propagated status by a given propagation_value (by 1 to 5 severities);
2 - decrease the propagated status by a given propagation_value (by 1 to 5 severities);
3 - ignore this service - the status is not propagated to the parent service at all;
4 - set fixed service status using a given propagation_value.
