Icinga Zone belongs to a tenant:
Finally, click on “Add” to store the template in working memory. You must deploy the template to push the changes in your monitoring environment.
No sensitive data must be stored on service templates. Please use the host templates for this purpose.
When there is more than one Icinga Zone for a single tenant, you will need to create duplicate
host templates, which are identical except for the
Cluster Zone value.

Sat_Internal and they are in the following
Now, let’s assume they all are checking the same service which requires the same credentials.
In that case, you need 2 identical host templates i.e.,
Cluster Zone value which will be
This additinal configuration is required, because there is no way for the director to deploy a
host template that contains sensitive information in both zones (
maintaining data secrecy.
You don’t have to touch the service templates since they must not contain sensitive data.
