Zabbix is an open source monitoring solution for network servers, devices, services and other IT resources. The integration makes it possible to receive alerts from Zabbix.

Verified integration version

Zabbix 5.0.0

Older Zabbix versions with Agent dependency do not work when upgraded to Zabbix 4.4.3. Reconfigure the upgraded Zabbix 4.4.3 as described in this document.

  3. Click + to define the mappings.

  4. From Create Alert Mappings on Status, define:

    • mappings
    • parsing conditions
    • default values
  5. Click Save.

The following tables shows attribute mappings:

Zabbix configuration

The following steps describe how to configuring media types and actions.

Step 1: Configure media types

  1. Log into Zabbix Admin UI.
  2. Go to Administration, Media Type and click Create Media Type. Media Type screen appears.
  3. Enter the following required details and click Add.
    • Name: Any name for media type (For example, OpsRamp Alert Webhook)

  4. Click Add. The Media Type is added.

Parameter descriptions

The following table provides parameter descriptions for configuring media types.

NameValue
Subject{ALERT:SUBJECT}
Message{ALERT:MESSAGE}
OpsRampURLwebhook URL copied from OpsRamp (For example: https://{yourdomain}:/integrations/alertsWebhook/client_1/alerts?vtoken={token}
HTTPProxy(Optional, needed when zabbix is configured for a proxy network) http://{proxy IP}:{port}

Script

The following is a script for posting alert data to OpsRamp:

try {
Zabbix.Log(4, 'opsramp webhook script value=' + value);var result = {
'tags': {
'endpoint': 'opsramp'
}
},
params = JSON.parse(value),
req = new CurlHttpRequest(),
alertPayload = {},
resp;postAlertToOpsRamp();/**
* Function to post alert data to OpsRamp
*/
function postAlertToOpsRamp() {
req.AddHeader('Content-Type: application/json');
req.AddHeader('Accept: application/json');
if (typeof params.HTTPProxy !== 'undefined' && params.HTTPProxy !== '') {
req.SetProxy(params.HTTPProxy);
}
var res = req.Post(params.OpsRampURL,prepareOpsRampAlertPayload());
res = JSON.parse(res);
}/**
* Function to prepare required OpsRamp alert payload to send
*/
function prepareOpsRampAlertPayload() {
alertPayload.Subject = params.Subject;
var msg = params.Message;
var msgLines = msg.split('\r\n');
for (var i = 0; i < msgLines.length; i++) {
var field = msgLines[i].split(':');
alertPayload[field[0]] = field[1];
}alertPayload.State = alertPayload['Status'];
if(alertPayload['Status'] == 'PROBLEM') {
if(alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'Information' || alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'Not classified') {
alertPayload.State='Information';
} else if(alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'Average' || alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'Warning') {
alertPayload.State='Warning';
} else if(alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'High' || alertPayload['Trigger_Severity'] == 'Disaster') {
alertPayload.State='High';
}
} else if (alertPayload['Status'] == 'OK') {
alertPayload.State = 'OK';
}return JSON.stringify(alertPayload);
}return "OK";
} catch (error) {
Zabbix.Log(4, 'OPSRAMP issue creation failed json : ' + JSON.stringify({"fields": fields}));
Zabbix.Log(4, 'OPSRAMP issue creation failed : ' + error);
result = {};
}

return JSON.stringify(result);
