Working with the new host dependency feature (yay it’s finally here!) - some of us don’t use DNS in our networks, so devices appear in the dependency UI with the hostname data (an IP address in this case). Is there a way to have the UI display the sysName field instead of the hostname field so it’s a bit easier to identify devices?
I would also like to see this.
+1 on this.
I already have the following configured in the config.php
Force IP to Sysname
$config[‘force_ip_to_sysname’] = true;
It does’nt seem to make a difference though.
This is kind of available now - if you go to the device edit page (https://nms/device/device=1/tab=edit/) and place your cursor in the “This device depends on:” field, you’ll get a list of all your other devices by IP with their sysName beside them.
could it not also apply to the following page http://librenms/device-dependencies/ page too?
Any idea is Sysname will be supported in the Device Dependencies page? I have Force Sysname on for the rest of LibreNMS and it works well!
Device Dependencies is the key place to have Sysname to make life easier.
It makes complete sense.
We just need contributors to actually code it. It is probably only 1 or 2 lines. May be only a few letter I would say. But LibreNMS is a community based project, so either you can motivate somebody to do it, or you do it yourself
Hey @PipoCanaja - I personally dont have the coding skills to do this - anyone willing to take a look at this?
Plus one for this.
Ps no coding skills either.
Should be merged in a couple of days, if the patch is accepted by the community. Nobody is a developper here, we all have a job (network admin, sysadmin, etc etc) and learn dev everytime we have an issue …
Thank you - looks great and has updated on my instance!
