WebUI 2.7 is out

Guillaume Subiron

Hi everybody,

After lot of work the new WebUI version is out: 2.7.

Major improvements

Besides a lot of UI improvements, the goal of this version is to allow the user to stay as much as possible in the "Problems" view (/all).

Problems view

The accordions have been debugged and they are displaying a lot of useful information to avoid going into the detailed hosts/services views.


This version is also making a new place to comments, in the element's accordions. It should be easy to have a glance at the history of a service, and to add a new comment when necessary. It is actually opening the way to a more collaborative Shinken WebUI (something you usually find in tickets trackers or in Trello).


Element history


Some parts did get improved too:

  • Improve and cleanup sidebar

  • Cleanup style of accordions
  • Display comments in accordions
  • Display notes in accordions
  • Allow to add comments in accordions

  • Move actions in topbar
  • Lot of code cleanup in forms and actions

  • When searching for hostgroups and hosttags, search returns hosts and associated services
  • Replace downtime icon, improve get_fa_icon_state, and add column in problems view with ack and downtime icons

Other features are available:
