Werk #16269: Adapt date formatting in most of the service outputs

Component Checks & agents
Title Adapt date formatting in most of the service outputs
Date Dec 2, 2023
Checkmk Version 2.3.0b1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed
Affected Editions
2.3.0b1 Checkmk Raw (CRE), Checkmk Enterprise (CEE), Checkmk Cloud (CCE), Checkmk MSP (CME)

According to one of our surveys, most of our users prefer dates to be displayed in the format YYYY-MM-DD. This Werk changes the library function that many check plugins use when rendering their service summary.

As a result, the service output of many plugins will now format the date in the new format. For instance the next Interantional Talk Like a Pirate Day will no longer be rendered as "Sep 19 2024", but as "2024-09-19".

The following plugins are affected:

  • Checkmk Agent: Deployment properties
  • Checkmk: Performance and Settings
  • Job Monitoring
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus: Updates (KESL)
  • Kubernetes: Pod Containers
  • Microsoft Azure Resource Health
  • Microsoft Azure Virtual Network Gateways: Connections
  • MS SQL Tablespaces: Successful Backups
  • Nutanix Prism: Alerts
  • Nutanix Prism: Hosts
  • Oracle Database: Number of Active Sessions
  • SAP HANA: Backup
  • Virtual Machine under ESX: Snapshot Settings
