+1 for this feature. I have to deploy environments for different customers, each env has about 100 servers and we have Host Group per Customer in Zabbix.
It would be really helpful if I can define macros per Host Group (per customer).

I would want HOST->HOSTGROUP->TEMPLATE, but "configurable" is probably the correct way to set it up.

For dealing with hostgroup collision (e.g. two hostgroups supply a user macro {#FOO}), this could be handled with any kind of sort, with the "first" item winning. It would probably be nicer if user macros (or the host groups themselves) could be assigned priorities as well as values, in which case sorting on the priority would be natural and perhaps easier for the user to plan for in light of mandated naming schemes.

bump. We have a need to set different thresholds based on environment and location, so as a result, we have to create inheritable templates that simply have the purpose of holding macros and no new items
