      Description

      it would be great to customise available profile fields - current hardcoded list is very inflexible.

      if implemented, it should be considered how to tie that into permission system (maybe some users shouldn't see all data) and possible custom lists per some grouping (hostgroup ? templates ?)

          This is something I'd be very interested in. It's good to see the improvements in 2.0 - with the automatic inventory. But half the things we've collected from the agents. e.g CPU spec, RAM spec, HD spec, graphics card, BIOS version, motherboard spec etc have no use! The only one I've currently got in use is OS.

          It would also be good to be able to customise the inventory overview screen (rather than the specific host), to only view certain types of information.

          This is something we would use.

          We are using VB scripts to get inventory information back from windows systems, but I'm having problems inserting the received data into the correct title. For example we can pull back information about memory DIMMs but don't have a relevant name to assign it to (at present I use Type)

          Being able to configure the overview screen would be great too as differing teams have different requirements for looking at data.

          Another good idea would be to be able to use the .csv output feature in this screen so you can provide reports.

          Zabbix V2 is great, I really appreciate the new features.

          Regards,

          Doug

          I think that would also greatly simplify connections to CMDBs like i-doit or iTop .

          This is the feature what we need too.
          For us, the names of the fields for inventory are not useful.

          Our server are (nearly all) virtual. We don't need an location, contact, single software fields or so.
          What we need are fields for CPU, RAM, IPs,...

          A good topic is if is possible to delete unnecessary fields.

          An important thing: we use ubuntu server mit zabbix from repo -> the changes must be available after an update!
          Thanks.

          Regards
          Karsten

          +1 for this, you know, ability to customize is the key to make automation for the service management more fancy!

          Very usefull feature and as I said in othe feature request. Good idea is to od as crowdfunding page for each feature request and contribute on this feature as we need.

          I found nice page http://www.zabbix.com/development_services.php where on the bottom of this page is possibility to Contribute on specific feature. I think that it can be way how to promote some feature requests and to do something like crowdfunding on specific feature. Zabbix dev setup price and we can contribute on this feature I think it can be good way how to pay for each feature and to to pay whole development by one customer.
