      Description

      currently it is only possible to add comments to triggers.
      it would be also useful to add comments to other entities :

      items (for example, cautioning against too short intervals, explaining needed permissions on agent side etc);
      templates (explaining it's usage and impact);
      hostgroups (adding general group contact info etc).

      ideally, this would be coupled with host inventory, so that these entities might gain multiple fields instead of a single 'comment' field.

      in that case, ability to customise profile fields would be mandatory - ZBXNEXT-336

        We also would really appreciate if this could be build-in. Especially for items!

        Is this still planned? It's a prerequisite for adding custom inventory items and kinda a big feature!

        How can I help? I'm good with relational DB's and php.

        We already edited our custom fields to store different information. But we need an ability to add comments / relational data so that inventory fields, etc, can be administered via the dashboard.

        item description is already available; template, host and proxy descriptions are coming in 2.4

        from that list, hostgroups seems to be the only one missing

        Common, we're talking about a comment box without macro support/resolving in first place. Macro support might then be a candidate for sponsoring
