Advisory for Icinga 2 v2.7 Update and Mail Notification Scripts

You may have recognized that Icinga 2 v2.7 introduced new notification scripts. These came out of the interest we’ve seen in community scripts. So we decided to bring these scripts into Icinga 2 v2.7 making them available for everyone.
The scripts were designed to act as drop-in replacement with old 2.6.x configuration. Unfortunately several environment variables had been renamed. Testers didn’t catch this, so here is a summary for you what to fix and change in your scripts during an upgrade.
Note: These changes will be released in 2.7.1, still this requires your manual interaction beforehand. This advisory is to keep you informed and your notifications safe.

Nagios Plugins URL & Name Update: Monitoring Plugins @ https://www.monitoring-plugins.org

Dear community,
Icinga wouldn’t be so successful without the magnificent job by the Monitoring Plugin Development Team (former Nagios Plugins Development Team) and their Monitoring Plugins (former Nagios Plugins) that are fully compatible with Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2.
It seems that censorship is at play again  – the current nagios-plugins.org web server serves  hijacked content, which is different to the original content shared by the Monitoring Plugin Development Team.
nagios_plugins_diff_monitoring_plugins
This seems to be due to the fact that the project decided to rename itself to “Monitoring Plugins” – take a look at the official announcement.
Just to be safe, please update your bookmarks: https://www.monitoring-plugins.org is the official url to receive future announcements on new plugin releases, compatible with Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2!
The online Icinga documentation has already been updated. If you find any wrong URL references, please let us know!
