Escalation Wizard Creates escalation chains for a selection of hosts or services The challenges of this wizard: Creating a configuration that will always pass verification, particularly for service escalations. Services can be assigned to 1 host, many hosts, or hostgroups. The ideal wizard will look completely different for users who utilize single host->service definitions, vs service->hostgroup definitions. Pair an escalation definition with a CCM “Config Name” and “Service Description”. Creates more escalation definitions, but configs will always work, and bulk creation is still maintained.
