A read-only user for the nagios web interface?


A simple question (hopefully). I want to know if it’s possible to create a non-admin account for the Nagios web interface, so that regular users can see which devices are up/down, but are not able to do any of the admin stuff like disable alarms and add notes.

What would I need to edit to do this?


oh hey nevermind, find it by playing around in the cgi.cfg file.

Can someone confirm that I just add my read user to the authorized_for_all_services= and authorized_for_all_hosts= line and that’ll have the desired effect? Certainly seems to work
