The states and service status detail of hosts and services can now be translated. You can now use the rules {{Host state translation}} and {{Service state translation}} to configure the Check_MK core to translate either specific states to other states or the status detail to other texts.

States: For each host/service you can configure a transformation of each possible monitoring state to another one.

The state translation can, for example, be used to inverse a host check in case you want to get a notification in case a host becomes reachable.

The translation of detail outputs is done using regular expressions. You can specify multiple regular expressions (infix match, case sensitive) per object which are applied to the current status detail. The matched text will be replaced by the specified replacement text. You can use match groups to extract parts of the original text using the regular expression.
