There is a number of services that notify a contact_group on state changes. Is it possible to exclude a single contact that belongs to this group from getting notifications?
Prepending contact name with exclamation mark like this
contacts !user contact_groups admins
doesn't work. Nagios version is 3.0
As there is a lot of services, contact groups, hosts, etc. I'd like not to introduce further complexity by creating another group without just this user. Also, due to the number of services this group is supposed to monitor it'd be difficult to track who receives what and seems unintuitive at best.
Are explicit exclusions of contacts from notification possible at all?
