Nagios admin contact group

I am stuck at adding members to the admins group for the nagios cookbook.

I’ve created a databag called

“id”: “systems”,
“alias”: “systems”,
“use”: “default-contact”,
“email”: ""

I’ve also created a databag called “chef-repo/data_bags/nagios_contactgroup”

“id”: “admins”,
“alias”: “Administrator Contacts”,
“members”: “systems”

but after deployign a chef-client run, it still shows as follow:

Contacts from data bags

define contact {
name systems
contact_name systems
use default-contact
alias systems

Contact Groupss from data bags

Service escalations defined by data bags
