      Description

      Hi,

      i need to create a tree structure with the host groups, but at the moment it is not possible to automate the process. 

       

      The step that i do at the moment are the following:

      1- i have created a tree structure with host groups (see screenshot_1)

      2- i need to create a granular permission so that the user can see the full tree or only a branch, so i try to create some user groups. (see screenshot_2)

      3- but in permissions if i select a group that have some subgrups, put the flag on "include subgroups" and click add (see screenshot_3)

      4-The group is added in the permission but without including subgroups (see screenshot_4)

      5-So i need to go back to host groups and add the flag on "Apply permissions and tag filters to all subgroups" (see screenshot_5)

      6-After that in the created user group i start to see the "(including subgroups)"  (see screenshot_6)

       

      Because in my infrastructure i need to create a very big tree with thousand of hostgroups. I want to know if is possible implement in the future version of zabbix the possibility to have the mass update function in the frontend so i can update multiple hostgroups with this flag at the same time or if is possible to add the possibility to set this flag with zabbix API, because at the moment with the API i can only create the group and add hosts or other groups.

      Thanks in advance.

      Pietro
