Description Richard Maciel Costa 2018-10-11 00:24:48 UTC
Smart parameters of classes changed by an user bound to a given organization, reflect on smart parameters of the same-named class in all other organizations. Since classes are used to setup hosts parameters, this could lead to an user of an organization changing configurations of a host located in a different organization.
