Werk #2602: Tracking of incompatible Werks

Component User interface
Title Tracking of incompatible Werks
Date Sep 24, 2015
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.7i3
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

This new feature helps you updating your configuration after an update to a newer Check_MK version. Check_MK now keeps track about all Incompatible Werks. Such a Werk denotes a software change that might require your knowledge or interaction. In many cases it is just a service rediscovery of some affected hosts that needs to be done. In other cases manual adaptation of your configuration is neccessary.

Check_MK now shows you all such Werks in the new version page (click on the Check_MK version number at the top of the sidebar for going there). If you have admin permissions then you can actively acknowledge incompatible werks that you already have checked until you are clean. After each software update you now will see at one glance if some new incompatible Werk has happened since your last update.

Note: In order to keep things easy the tracking does not include any Werk that appeared in a version before the start of the 1.2.7 version branch.
