This is a repository for all my zabbix related stuff. This index helps determine which files may be useful to you.

ZABBIX-2.2-ERD.svg is a SVG file that is an Entity Relationship Diagram for Zabbix 2.2. is a perl script that generates an item report is a perl script that generates a trigger report

More API examples will be added shortly

To get the scripts to work you need to install the perl module JSON::RPC::Client this can be done through CPAN like: cpan[1]> install JSON::RPC::Client

Adding Zabbix Users using the API:

In the AddingUsers directory the script is used to get an authentication code to authenticate to the API.

Edit the script to fill in you relavant data (i.e. Zabbix URL, username, password) and run the script and you should see something like:


Authentication successful.

Auth ID: 847eced3a0d1436118c3e714ca7552d0

The script can be found in the AddingUsers folder of this repo.

Next the assumption is you would like to add the users to a specif group so the script will list out all the groups on the Zabbix server. (Note: make sure you replace the auth code 847eced3a0d1436118c3e714ca7552d0 in the script with the one generated for your server) Running the script should produce output something like:

root@lt-dcopeland:/home/dirck/API# ./ 
List of Groups
Group ID: 1 Name: UNIX administrators
Group ID: 2 Name: Database administrators
Group ID: 3 Name: Network administrators
Group ID: 4 Name: Security specialists
Group ID: 5 Name: WEB administrators
Group ID: 6 Name: Head of IT department
Group ID: 9 Name: Disabled
Group ID: 8 Name: Guests
Group ID: 10 Name: API access
Group ID: 12 Name: Backend
Group ID: 7 Name: Zabbix administrators
Group ID: 11 Name: Programmers
Group ID: 14 Name: Company Support
Group ID: 13 Name: Company

Next the actual script to create the users. Here is the specifics:

the script contains the folling code:

Next, you should have a list of users to add in a file - call it user.list-2-23-2015 (or whatever date is current) and the list will be in the form Last-Name First-Name:

Doe John
Doe Jane

Next run the command:

./ user.list-2-23-2015 and you should see something like:

./ user.list-2-23-2015

 Adding User: John Doe
$VAR1 = bless( {
                 'version' => 0,
                 'is_success' => 1,
                 'content' => {
                                'jsonrpc' => '2.0',
                                'id' => 1,
                                'result' => {
                                              'userids' => [
                 'jsontext' => '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":{"userids":["88"]},"id":1}'
               }, 'JSON::RPC::ReturnObject' );
