Add maintenance status to the supported conditions for actions on internal events

    Details

      Description

      Currently when creating actions for internal events, it is not possible to include the maintenance status in the conditions for that action, unlike for trigger based events. This is a problem since this means we get a bunch of high priority alerts when maintenance is performed.

      To give a little background: we have a host-group representing set of servers, where the actual servers are dynamically started and stopped according to load; a separate job takes care of detecting stopped hosts an marking them as not-monitored. Now, we need an alert if the number of servers ever goes to 0. For that we have a health item on each server (1 = healthy, 0 = bad), and then an aggregate host with an item grpsum["<host-group-of-the-servers>", <health-item>, last, 0], as well as a trigger on this grpsum item. The trigger will fire if all hosts have a health of 0 and there is at least one host; but if there are no (monitored) hosts in the host-group (all machines were stopped) then the grpsum item unfortunately goes into "not supported" state. Hence a separate action has been set up for this internal event. And just like actions for trigger based events, we need to be able to suppress this action when the host-group is put into maintenance.
