Title Quicksearch: multiple hostname matches now lead to the searchhost view instead of the hosts view
Date Jul 21, 2014
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.5i5
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

When a Quicksearch pattern matched multiple hosts the view All hosts was shown. This view displayed all services for these hosts, which could lead to plenty of (unwanted) output in the view. The quicksearch feature has been changed in the following way:

  • If there are multiple host matches the Search Host view is displayed
  • If there is a single match the Host view is displayed (this view also contains the services)

Note: This also applies to special search patterns like h:localhost h:otherhost
