Hi
Maybe somebody cah help. I have notifications to each alert by telegram, mail and cell phone. And I need to silent(maybe sticky ack.) only cell phone notifications from 7AM till 9PM for specific users or usergroup. And I don’t understand how to do it… I know this is very strange feature

I tried a lot of methods but no one helped me. Read a lot of community blocks.
If I correctly understand I need to use some builtin macros which can see some variable with notification cell phone command and hostname.

Maybe something like this

  ...
  if ( notification.name == "phone-service-sender") {
    period = "7to9"
  } else {
    period = "24x7"
  }
  ...

but I understand that I can’t call notification.name from users space, and also i need to get current hostname

Thank you!

Current config:
notifications.sender.conf

apply Notification "phone-host-sender" to Host {
  import "phone-host-notification"
  user_groups = host.vars.notification.pager.groups
  users = host.vars.notification.pager.users
  interval = 0
  assign where host.vars.notification.pager
}

apply Notification "phone-service-sender" to Service {
  import "phone-service-notification"
  user_groups = host.vars.notification.pager.groups
  users = host.vars.notification.pager.users
  interval = 0
  assign where host.vars.notification.pager
}

users.conf

object User "username" {
  enable_notifications = true
  display_name = "username"
  groups = [ "all device [contact group]" ]
  email = "EMAIL"
  pager = "CELL PHONE"
  vars.telegram = "TELEGRAM"
  period = "24x7"
}

timeperiods.conf

object TimePeriod "24x7" {
  display_name = "Icinga 2 24x7 TimePeriod"
  ranges = {
    "monday"    = "00:00-24:00"
    "tuesday"   = "00:00-24:00"
    "wednesday" = "00:00-24:00"
    "thursday"  = "00:00-24:00"
    "friday"    = "00:00-24:00"
    "saturday"  = "00:00-24:00"
    "sunday"    = "00:00-24:00"
  }
}

object TimePeriod "7to9" {
  display_name = "Icinga 2 work hours TimePeriod"
  ranges = {
    "monday"    = "00:00-09:00,21:00-24:00"
    "tuesday"   = "00:00-09:00,21:00-24:00"
    "wednesday" = "00:00-09:00,21:00-24:00"
    "thursday"  = "00:00-09:00,21:00-24:00"
    "friday"    = "00:00-09:00,21:00-24:00"
    "saturday"  = "00:00-24:00"
    "sunday"    = "00:00-24:00"
  }
}

Easiest way is to have 2 notification rules, have one rule use email/telegram and the other use the cellphone. Both rules can use different (or same) time periods as needed.

There is this section of the documentation that might help you achieve what you need without creating multiple rules.

Thank you, for your answer.
that’s right. I’ve got it. I’ve got 3 rules(templates) for host alerting by email, telegram, phone, and 3 rules for service alerting by email, telegram and phone which apply on each host.
I’m trying it right now, like you said.
But sorry, maybe do you know some another way to do it? Problem is that I need to refactor all scheme of notification from nice to ugly view.
yeah, I understand that I want some strange, but maybe you know some another way.
If you don’t, then anyway thanks a lot!

@steaksauce
eventually, I had taken you advice and transformed him a little bit then I got solution for my problem.

I made not a 2 notification rules then 2 user object. First one with email\telegram and second only with cellphone. Or maybe you were just mean this exactly, but I did’t understand that )
Example:
user.conf

object User "USERNAME" {
  enable_notifications = true
  display_name = "USER NAME"
  groups = [ "all devices [contact group]" ]
  email = "USERNAME@MAIL"
  vars.telegram = "TELEGRAM"
  period = "24x7"
}

user.phone.conf

object User "USERNAME_PHONE" {
  enable_notifications = true
  display_name = "USER NAME(PHONE)"
  groups = [ "all devices [contact group]" ]
  pager = "CELLPHONE"
  period = "7to9"
}

p.s.: then to kept this straight, and don’t lose groups I added variable with cellphone to user.conf(vars.phone = ‘blablabla’) and incron service to watch on “user.conf” and generate “user.phone.conf”.

Thank you!
