      Description

      Issue: Population of Inventory

      to Include Macro support for Profile fields in hosts

      any easy way to populate the inventory per macro of the latest data pulled via snmp (item check)

      still tedious to have to create a different macro for each host but would help

        During discovery I ask for sysName.0 with a accoring rule. It would be nice to have an action to fill the name field of the profile of the newly discovered host with the value of the sysName.0 from the discovery.

        The same applies to a lot of other data in the profile (location, contact, OS, OS Version, Hardware, serial number...). Filling the profile data automatically would help a LOT with asset management.

        oh, i got the idea behind automated data populating - i wasn't sure how exactly macros fit in there

        if Profile had Macro capabilities you could do Global Macro that is attached to a template item per it's own host

        {6504:.1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.9.1001.last(0)}

        which would be IOS Version, then
        again if i have to fill those in manually then why dont i look up the IOS and fill it in.
        I have a template the gives all the device info by snmp pulls being able to update from those templates to the profile would be nice.

        auto-discovery/discovery would maybe, be the best solution for this fix, tying them together seem to be the problem
        unless you create a Map to function => in the new check

        Create New Check>
        SNMP>
        ports => 161
        SNMP community => public
        SNMP OID => sysName.0
        Map to => Name

        I believe Name should be pulled from the inventory, typically host is the identifier which would be the Name anyhow besides the IP Address which isn't include in the list
