4 Discovery rules

Overview

The list of low-level discovery rules for a template can be accessed from Configuration → Templates by clicking on Discovery for the respective template.

A list of existing low-level discovery rules is displayed. It is also possible to see all discovery rules independently of the template, or all discovery rules of a specific host group by changing the filter settings.

Displayed data:

Column Description

Name Name of the rule, displayed as a blue link.
Clicking on the rule name opens the low-level discovery rule configuration form.
If the discovery rule is inherited from another template, the template name is displayed before the rule name, as a gray link. Clicking on the template link will open the discovery rule list on that template level.

Mass editing options

Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:

  • Disable - change the low-level discovery rule status to Disabled
  • Delete - delete the low-level discovery rules

To use these options, mark the checkboxes before the respective discovery rules, then click on the required button.

Using filter

You can use the filter to display only the discovery rules you are interested in. For better search performance, data is searched with macros unresolved.

The Filter icon is available at the top right corner. Clicking on it will open a filter where you can specify the desired filtering criteria such as template, discovery rule name, item key, item type, etc.
