3 Host export

For Zabbix versions up to 1.8.3, host and template export is available at Configuration → Export/Import. Starting with 1.8.3, import and export controls are available on corresponding configuration pages (Configuration → Hosts and Configuration → Templates).

3.1 Since Zabbix 1.8.3

3.1.1 Step 1

Navigate either to Configuration → Hosts or Configuration → Templates, depending on which ones you want to export. Mark checkboxes next to elements to be exported.

3.1.2 Step 2

Make sure that Export selected is chosen in the activity dropdown below host or template list, then click Go and save the file.

3.2 Up to Zabbix 1.8.3

Step 1

Select elements for export

We selected host "Template_Linux" and all its items and triggers.

Press button "Preview" to see list of elements to be exported:

Step 2

Export data

Press button "Export" to export selected elements to a local XML file with default name zabbix_export.xml. The file has the following format (one element of each type is shown):
