|Compatibility||Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required|
If you have always used WATO to configure your Check_MK you are not affected by this change.
There have been two configuration options for configuring logwatch pattern on Check_MK server side rules for a long time. The old one, logwatch_patterns, and the newer WATO compatible ruleset logwatch_rules. The second one has replaced the first one a long time ago. The old config optionswas still working for compatibility but has been removed now.
If you have configured such rules in your configuration, it will still load, but print out a warning message like this: "WARNING: Found rules for deprecated ruleset 'logwatch_patterns'. These rules are not applied anymore. In case you still need them, you need to migrate them by hand. Otherwise you can remove them from your configuration."
