Werk #11243: Bulk Dicovery: Align caching options with discovery page

Component WATO
Title Bulk Dicovery: Align caching options with discovery page
Date Aug 22, 2020
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.0.0i1
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

On the {{Bulk Discovery}} WATO page you could set the options {{Use cached data if present}} and {{Do full SNMP scan for SNMP devices}}. The latter one had no effect since Checkmk version 1.5.0. The idea behind the option {{Do a full SNMP scan}} was contacting the SNMP device and ignoring existing caches. This behaviour is implemented behind the option {{Do a full service scan}} on the {{WATO Discovery}} page.

Moreover the {{Bulk Discovery}} page was inconsistent with the {{WATO Discovery}} page - independent of above options. Thus we removed both options {{Use cached data if present}} and {{Do full SNMP scan for SNMP devices}} and add the option {{Do a full service scan}} in order to adapt the behaviour to the discovery page. Now both pages work the same way.

Please note: With this new option a service scan of SNMP devices may take more time as before because now this device will be contacted for real.
