Found the mail plugin at share/check_mk/notifications and added following


  ( "hostgroup", "both", True, "Hostgroup",




I am sure there is a nicer way doing this but it works for me for now and hope somebody will implement this + commit to master. Thanks very much for the hint, Marcel.

Hi, can we configure the notification to include the hostgroup name in the notifications beeing sent?


By default there is

-       Host

-       Service

-       Event

-       Address

-       Date / Time

-       …


When receiving a notification mail it would be very helpful to know which hostgroup the host is child of.
