#4 multiple user question


Hi there. I'm noticing with multiple users, that with
the apache auth passing information, from what I've
read in the contacts.cfg file, it matches the htpass
user with contact_name. The part I'm having difficulty
with, is how the -pager or -email gets appened to that
contact_name part and the alias is what I would think
gets matched. Does this make any sense?

Actually, ignore all that, let me look at this fresh
again, but love the interface!!

    The -pager and -email are appended by nagiosweb. When the
    contact is created in the txt files it is defined twice.
    This is what allows you to assign just a person's e-mail or
    pager to a contact group instead of all or none.

    Hope that helps, I'm closing this for now.

    Hi there !

    The problem is that it does that. The Apache authentication
    would have to be jdoe-pager or jdoe-email in order to match
    that field in contacts.cfg.

    Would there be a way to have it append nothing so that it
    would have the user contact name w/o that so it would match
