All parameters for discovered services, as well as manual checks, can now be assigned to specific timeperiods. This makes it quite easy to configure exceptions, for example, when a data backup is running. Each eligible WATO rule offers a button Enable timespecific parameters, which switches the rule into the timespecific mode.

In this mode you can configure a list of timeperiods and the related check parameters. You can also configure a default check parameter, in case none of given the timeperiods matches.

The information, whether a timeperiod is active or not, is taken from the core during the check execution. When the core is down/unreachable, the fall default check parameter will be used. If a configured timeperiod name is not known, the default parameter will be used, too.
