Customize trigger severity on discovered trigger

      Description

      tl;dr: Please make it possible to customize trigger severity on discovered triggers.

      Most IT systems are in inhomogeneous environments and therefore have differently important things to monitor. To keep costs and efforts low we use LLD as much as possible on all systems we monitor. But often it is important to be able to change the severity of a lld discovered trigger because there are things more important than others. Let's say you have a network switch with 200 interfaces, but some interfaces are just more important than others. And these important interfaces are different on almost every device. Or lets say you are monitoring different filesystems which are all discovered by LLD. But some filesystems on some hosts are just more important than others.

      It is so frustrating not to be able to change the severity on these discovered triggers per host.

      And no, changing the severity on prototype level, as suggested in ZBX-18582 is no alternative at all . This means I would either change the severity of all discovered triggers, which doesn't help here. So we need any filter criteria on device items to differentiate between important and not so important things combined with two or more low level discoveries. The problem is, you don't always have any filter criteria to differentiate. Some things are just more important because of topology and you can't say which one in an lld.

      So, please make it possible to customize trigger severity on discovered triggers.

      Thank you,

      Holger

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Open a discovered trigger (from a discovery job) and try to change the trigger severity

      Result:
      Cannot change trigger severity, all options are greyed out
      Expected:
      Should be able to change trigger severity for each discovered trigger
