I believe you have to create an alert handler for that and that way do it “automatically”.

Alert handlers are only available in the Checkmk Enterprise Editions.
Try creating a “notification” instead :stuck_out_tongue:

haha Ill try :-):

Noch ein Hinweis für Benutzer der Checkmk Raw Edition : Auch Sie können das Monitoring automatisiert Aktionen ausführen lassen. Verwenden Sie dazu die „Event Handler“ von Nagios. Konfigurieren Sie diese mit manuellen Konfigurationsdateien in Nagios-Syntax unterhalb von ~/etc/nagios/conf.d/. Die Event Handler sind gut dokumentiert. Hinweise dazu finden Sie durch einfaches Googeln.

I was about to post that :slight_smile:

A further tip for Checkmk Raw Edition users: monitoring can also be enabled to execute actions automatically. Use Nagios’s ‘Event Handler’ for this. Configure this with manual configuration files in Nagios-Syntax under ~/etc/nagios/conf.d/. The event handlers are well documented. Information can be found simply via Google.
