Name-Generator based on locations / hostgroups / variables

Hi all,

just a short idea: Do you think it would be possible to implement name generation based on locations / hostgroups etc?
Is there any attribute or option to set a specific name generation?
In our company we use some kind of concatination of a buildingnumber (alphanumerical), fixed string and a number counting up. Each servername is unique and needs to be unique.

Is there any way right now and i just missed it? or do you think there are others which might be interested and it is worth to be implemented?
what do you think about this idea?

At the moment it is a global setting in Settings > Provisioning > Type of name generator.

The name generator itself is actually a separate ruby gem:

Hi Dirk,

yes - i found that option already, but it has no option to customize the generated string.
Maybe it’s worth a feature request?
Anyone else got an idea? How do you solve it in daily operating?
