Display user name and surname in the WEB interface

ZBXNEXT-1569

Status: v1.1

Owner: Alexei

Summary

User name and surname must be displayed along with existing alias where possible.

Interface changes

Existing user 'alias' should be extended by 'alias (name surname)' when used for acknowledges:

  • Monitoring->Dashboard acknowledgement popup visible on mouse-over
  • Monitoring->Triggers->Acknowledgement
  • Monitoring->Events->Event details (column 'User' in the list of acknowledges)
  • Screens->Status of host triggers acknowledgement popup visible on mouse-over
  • Screens->Status of host group triggers acknowledgement popup visible on mouse-over

Also in other places where currently we have 'alias' displayed:

  • Monitoring->Dashboard actions popup visible on mouse-over
  • Configuration->Actions (list & form) -> Operations (send to users)
  • Administration->Users members column
  • Administration->Users->Form user selection list

The "Name" and "Surname" fields in the user configuration form should be optional. If both 'name and 'surname' are empty then display it as 'alias'. If 'name' or 'surname' is empty then display as 'alias (surname)' or 'alias (name)' respectively.

The name and surname should be displayed via a translatable string ("%1$s %2$s") so that it would be possible to localize the order in which the name will be displayed.

Database changes

The 'name' and 'surname' of the "guest" user in data.tmpl must be empty.

Documentation

  • Zabbix Manual
    • All screenshots with visible alias (mostly acknowledgement and actions related pages)
    • User properties descriptions must be updated with info that name & surname are optional now
