hey all, i want to achieve something like this
vars.foo = "example"
vars.query = "..." + vars.foo + "..."
with icinga director. how is that possible? Currently everything i write into a customfield gets quoted.
- Director version (System - About): 1.8.1
Version used (icinga2 --version): 2.11.3
Operating System and version: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Enabled features (icinga2 feature list): api checker command ido-pgsql influxdb mainlog notification
Config validation (icinga2 daemon -C): (/)
$vars.foo$ just in the textfield without additional
+ should work. Perhaps it will require the full scope like
But I want to concatenate this variable with text. That’s the reason for the +. For more details about that issue see References in custom-vars are not resolved · Issue #281 · Mikesch-mp/icingaweb2-module-grafana · GitHub and the two referenced icinga2 and icingaweb2 issues
if you are inside of a command you can use icinga dsl to concat variables.
var mystring1 = macro("$customvar1$");
var mystring2 = macro("$customvar2$");
return mystring2 = “…” + mystring1 + “…”;
How do i do it with director only? For me the examples look like config file solutions?
ok, but this only applies to arguments passed to a command, right? But i need this feature as a separate variable to access the variable with the grafana plugin.
you could explain what you are trying to achieve so it’s easier for us to help you find a workaround. If others see the usefulness the probability of implementation is also much higher
