Gut Ding will Weile haben. Or, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Though, I like the German version more because it’s not that quite a stretch.
Well, what this is all about you ask? It’s been the first quarter of 2017 when the first version of the Icinga Business Process Module had the chance to impress its audience. It’s gone rather quiet since then. But don’t worry, just two years later there is the solution to the so-called order it imposed on us: Chaos.
Okay, okay, straight to the point:
Previously it wasn’t possible to disable the automatically applied alphabetical order of nodes. It is now possible to simply grab a node and move it wherever you want it to. Or, to be the master of chaos, so to speak.
Ever wanted to re-use a process you defined within a different configuration? Without duplicating it? This has been an undocumented feature but is now fully integrated into the UI and documented.
Usability and Visualization
Additionally the breadcrumbs and the tree view were adjusted and got a lighter design to help those with epilepsy. Well, not quite correct, we just thought a change is due. Besides, the navigation has been enhanced by allowing you to jump to the overview using the breadcrumbs and letting external info URLs open in a new browser tab.
