I would like to know if i can call
restore_attribute() function directly from API to reset an object variables, i couldn’t find it in the documentation, I’m not sure if it’s possible with the release I’m currently using: r2.10.5-1.
I found out i could use it from console in this way :
Here are the reasons why i’m looking forward to use it in this way :
I’m trying to use both the package/stage system and the API runtime objects to manage services tresholds pushed on the fly to adapt production needs, and keep the advantages the package system provides.
After some testing, i found out that
/var/lib/icinga2/modified-attributes.conf saves all modifications made at runtime, and it does not purge objects after a new package version whether the objects vars were updated or not, however it works fine when the modification comes from runtime.
I also validated this by checking
original_attributes in console.
So, when i’m creating a new package, changing the variables at runtime with api and pushing a newer version of the package with updated vars, they are overridden by the thoses previously defined at runtime.
This is why i want to be able to use restore_attribute from the API in order to purge runtime modifications before pushing a new stage.
