Is there a dynamic status macro based on the content of it?


I'm looking for a way to display the status macro or similar, with color coding, based on its content.

The content is pulled from an external source via the magnificent SQL Plugin, and I'd like to color code the result based on it (not entire rows, just single cells, based on singular string values).

Thoughts on how this might be achieved?

In your SQL statement, you can make a field to have text something like:


Use an SQL case statement or similar to condition the specific value of the status value based on what is in your data. Make sure you specify output=wiki in your sql macro.

Just to follow up, example with MySQL for those who wonder:

CASE `icinga_hoststatus`.`current_state`   
 WHEN '0' THEN '{status:title=UP|color=green}'  
 WHEN '1' THEN '{status:title=DOWN|color=red}'  
 WHEN '2' THEN '{status:title=UNREACHABLE|color=red}}' 
END as hoststatus
FROM `icinga_hosts`,`icinga_hostgroups`,`icinga_hostgroup_members`,`icinga_hoststatus`,`icinga_objects`  
WHERE (`icinga_hosts`.`host_object_id`=`icinga_hostgroup_members`.`host_object_id`)
AND (`icinga_hostgroups`.`hostgroup_id`=`icinga_hostgroup_members`.`hostgroup_id`)
AND (`icinga_objects`.`object_id`=`icinga_hostgroups`.`hostgroup_object_id`)
AND (`icinga_hosts`.`host_object_id`=`icinga_hoststatus`.`host_object_id`)
AND (`icinga_objects`.`objecttype_id`='3')
AND (`icinga_objects`.`name1` like '<hostgroup>') 

Thanks for your quick reply!
