The assignment of Event Console events to contact groups is a bit more flexible now. There is a new global option in User Interface called Precedence of contact groups of events. The default setting is Host's contact groups have precedence and implements the previos behaviour. You now can change that to Contact groups in rule have precedence. This handles the case where an event can successfully be mapped to a host in the monitoring while there are specified explicit contact groups in the event rule. Those will have then precedence and not only be used as a fall back. That way you can explicitely assign events to arbitrary contact groups and by that way control the visibility. Note: this has now influence on notification.
