Treat Triggers and Colors profiles as objects

I have hundreds or CLI objects for telnet, SSH and the like.  What would be really handy is the ability to have triggers or color profiles as objects, in the same fashion as you do for passwords, or secure gateways, for example.

If I can explain further...

Bulk edit sure is nice, yes.  However, even if you bulk edit triggers, you still have to add 50 triggers, 1-by-1, for those 50 devices.  Then, when you want to add another device, you can clone the existing one...sure - but now what if I want to add that new trigger to my prior 50 devices...my task starts over again with bulk edit.

Having the profile for triggers would be hugely helpful, since I'd do something like add them for Avaya switches, hp switches, Cisco switches, and so on.  Triggers for running through logs and highlighting text for example - the wording is different on platforms, so being able to associate the triggers with objects so I don't have to bulk edit, but only need to change 1 entry and have it linked to all my cisco equipment...that would be ideal.

The same example is used for the colors.  Certain colors profiles used for certain devices as well.  Manually doing them 1-by-1, even with bulk edit is still not ideal since you may want to tweak a color setting, then still have to bulk edit across hundreds of devices.

I thought about asking for a way to export/import settings, but this idea already follows how the app works.

As in, want to specify a password?  Ok.  Or, do you want to specify that the password is inherited by the parent folder?  Or want to link the password yourself with an existing object?  These requests follow the application build in the way we're already using it.

I certainly appreciate the app - colors and triggers are so awesome and I'd love to utilize them even more than I do now.

Thanks for the great apps!!!


Hi Brian,


just wanted to let you know that we agree with everything you suggested but it's not yet on our roadmap.

We will evaluate our options and hopefully have something ready before the first stable release of V4 is out.


cheers,

Thanks so much for the consideration :)

I never thought I'd love the objects so much, especially for colors and triggers.  Who knew?

Thanks again!

Brian
