Grouping Downtime Notifications

Hi All,

We’re monitoring a web application with several services on several servers (and it’s only going to get more). When we do a deployment, is there any way to group the downtime notifications so that we only get one notification rather than one for each service? Happy to set downtime individually on each service, but it would be awesome to only receive one notification.

Any ideas of any ways to achieve this?

Using Icinga2 version r2.13.2-1.

Thanks for your help.

you could create a new notification template (WEB) for host and services without a downtime notification.
then you create a dummy deploy host with checkcommand dummy with a dummy service.
this dummy host gets the normal notification template.

in case of deploy you create a downtime for all WEB hosts and the dummy host.
