The ‘Members’ directive in a host group definition

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Under the “Host groups” definition page, we can use the “Members” field available to list the hosts that should be included in this group. This directive may be used as an alternative to (or in addition to) the hostgroups directive in “Host” definitions as mentioned earlier in this document.

Remember that the auto detection engine of BLESK prefers to use the “Host” definitions to associate a new host with a hotsgroup and this is done in each “Host” definitions page, not here.

This doesn’t prevent you from manually doing it here (in the Members field) for hosts that have not automatically been exported by the auto detection engine.

Note: If you select a hostgroup inside a host definition using the hostgroups directive in “Host” definition, this host will not be selected here (in Host Groups under the Members field) because these are two different ways to specify a hostgroup!
