How to make a view of specific host groups?

Hi,
Currently, I’m using check_mk 2.0.0p11 (CEE).
I did a bunch of host groups to each location (e.g. Germany, Spain, Canada, etc…).
I’m able to do an individual view of a group and a view of all groups, but can’t find a way of doing a view of for example 2 out 5 host groups.
Is there some option that I’m not seeing?

Hi,
you can create a Search Filter in your view for several host groups:

Hi,
Thanks for the answer.

What view are you using? Because I tried on view with that option available and got a lot of duplicate names.

Hi,
Monitor > All Hosts

Hi,
That way it will show the hosts and the user has to set it up.
I wanted to show something like this on the general dashboard (all locations):

And when I go to a specific location for example Germany dashboard, I want to be able to show only the host groups, like the image above, but for the locations in Germany.

So maybe you should use the view “Host group” from the “Monitor” menu and then set filters (substrings or regexes) for the groups you would like to see. Then you can add this filtered view to other dashboards.
Would this solve your problem?

Edit: just tried it and it works. If you remove the link from the title (which would make the view followable to the original unfiltered view) then users can only descend into the host groups they can see in the view.
Hope I understood your issue correctly :slight_smile:
