More control for mass-update operations
Mass update operations should be extended to support both add and update options for managing host and item related attributes.
Host mass update form
Existing 'Replace host groups' should be replaced by new control used for configuration of the Dashboard:
Replace host groups [X] [HOST GROUP MULTI-SELECT]
Existing 'New host group' should be replaced by a new control used for Dashboard configuration with an option to enter non-existent strings set:
Add new or existing host groups [X] [HOST GROUP MULTI-SELECT + NEW STRINGS OPTION]
If a group does not exist it will be created automatically.
If a host group already exists for a host it will be silently ignored.
Item mass update form
Existing 'Applications' should be replaced by two new controls:
Replace applications [X] [APPLICATIONS MULTI-SELECT] Add new or existing applications [X] [APPLICATION MULTI-SELECT + NEW STRINGS OPTION]
If an application does not exist it will be created automatically.
If an application already exists for an item it will be silently ignored.
The existing multi-select control will be extended to have optional support for entering new strings, i.e. strings not found in the data set. It should be allowed to enter one or more strings.
The new control should give a new option in the list of found results "abc (new entry)", where abc is currently entered string not found in the result set. The option will be placed as the last entry and clearly separated from results. It is very similar to Jira implementation for multi-selects.
New translation strings
Replace host groups
Add new or existing host groups
Add new or existing applications
