Description Heiko W. Rupp 2013-09-10 05:56:01 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #965201 +++

Condition Text currently only shows the severity of the alert (INFO or ERROR) and optionally the conditions.

It does not show the 'event source', which is useful, nor the text of the alert. If space allows, another column would be good for this. We have alerts for many hosts ('sources') that originate from one SNMP trap listener and we can't see the actual alert text or host.

This patch might work, but I need to test it:

Elias, you write

"Condition Text currently only shows"

where is that? In all places like list of alerts for a resource, or reports or?

Reports -> Recent Alerts

I'm thinking: http://localhost:7080/coregui/#Reports/Subsystems/RecentAlerts

though I think there are other similar views.

The 'Condition Text' column should have the text from the Event. It currently only shows:

Event Detection [INFO]

in this column.

--- Additional comment from Heiko W. Rupp on 2013-06-14 03:34:30 EDT ---

The 'Condition Text' is the condition you set to match, but not the matched value that you are interested in.

Currently the event line shows the condition and when you click on the creation time you can click on "conditions" to see the value.

Having said that, I can see that
a) it is hard to see the interesting stuff from the list
b) it is tedious to click 2 times to see the condition logs

Just adding a column for the source to the list does not sound good to me, as this
would be empty for most cases

First part is in master dad4e56a7b

Still need to think about the event source.
This is hidden in the resource and resource type.

This could perhaps be displayed in a column that is by default hidden
