Some of our customers got interested in the power of alert notifications and we are about to enhance the configuration to not only meet the needs of ourselves but also the clients who want to receive selective notifications. We did some research and think, all we need can be done but we want to make sure, we got it right, hence a number of questions:
- We can define our own roles and are not limited to the stock roles like sysadmin, dba, webmaster. Is that right?
- Each template can can multiple roles in the to field, separated by space, right?
- When overwriting the to field of a template, we do that in /etc/netdata - when using
edit-configwe get the file to overwrite all templates of a health category. Can we just overwrite one template in a category by creating the correct file containing only that overwritten template?
- Can a chart overwrite the to field of the alert templates? Use case is that we have many http checks configured, but for one of them, the alert should go to an additional custom role.
