Explain how to use document URLs.



Have information on destination web server.



The document URLs can be applied to hosts and services. They are defined in the "Configuration" section.

The purpose of these URLs is to allow access to web documentation, describing the steps to be followed in case of an issue with the element.


Configuration: add a documentation link

To configure the document URLs, go to the menu :

"Configuration" > "Hosts" or "Services" > "List".

You can then add the URLs one by one from the detail sheet of the selected item. eg:

Setpoint - Configuration


You can also add the same URL to several items at the same time.

  • Select the items :

Setpoint - Multiple selection

  • Choose the action: "Modify general information" :

Setpoint - Modify general information

  • Enter the URL and apply :

Setpoint - URL entry


Operation: Access a document

Once the URLs have been configured, they are accessible in two ways:

  • Monitoring > Monitoring > details tab of an item

Setpoint - Element sheet

  • Email notification
