This werk only affects users of non-Checkmk local customizations (single files and MKPs from non-
Checkmk sources such as the Checkmk exchange).
Before this werk, the Checkmk codebase offered two convenience functions for creating
ValueSpecs for passwords (either entered directly or selected from the password store):
IndividualOrStoredPassword and PasswordFromStore. These two functions had
misleading names and were therefore renamed:
- IndividualOrStoredPassword was renamed to MigrateToIndividualOrStoredPassword,
because this actually reflects what the returned ValueSpec does: It allows users to either
directly enter a password or select one from the store. Furthermore, it also handles legacy
configurations which did not offer the option to use the password store.
- PasswordFromStore was renamed to IndividualOrStoredPassword, which also
reflects its purpose: either directly enter a password or to select one from the store, but without
the handling of legacy configurations.
To stay compatible, we recommend to simply use IndividualOrStoredPassword instead of
PasswordFromStore in Checkmk 2.1 customizations, which will continue working when upgrading
Note that this only affects non-Checkmk customizations because as of the writing of this werk, any
customization produced by Checkmk will be obsolete with Checkmk 2.2.
