Check_MK makes use of icons in views and dashboards, but it is also possibleto add a custom icon to hosts or services for e.g. showing up the type ofthe device in a graphical way. This version also adds the option to registercustom icons and actions to host and services.
This change unifies the handling of icons used in such places. We implementedan icon selector which is used everywhere were you can select an icon. Thisicon selector groups the icons together in categories for more comfortableselection.
We added an icon upload mechanism which gives you the option to manage yourcustom icons using WATO. You can find it in the top level navigation of WATO.
All icons are now loaded from a fixed location, in OMD environments thisis share/check_mk/web/htdocs/images/icons for the icons distributedby us and local/share/check_mk/web/htdocs/images/icons for yourcustom icons.
Implementation detail: The category of an icon is saved directly in the iconimage. It is stored in the PNG comment metadata.
