You can now use custom user attributes (macros) for deciding which users should be notified. For that purpose there is a new check box in the contact selection of the rule based notifications called Restrict by custom macros. Here you can specify the name of custom macros and regular expressions for the allowed values. Users whose macros do not match are being removed from the list of contacts. Note: You first need to select contacts, the options just removes contacts, never adds ones.

Custom user attributes can be defined WATO's users module. Please make sure that you add your macros to the monitoring configuration by selecting Make this variable available in notifications.
