object map.update(object/array maps)

This method allows to update existing maps.


(object/array) Map properties to be updated.

The mapid property must be defined for each map, all other properties are optional. Only the passed properties will be updated, all others will remain unchanged.

Additionally to the standard map properties, the method accepts the following parameters.

Parameter Type Description
links array Map liks to replace the existing links.
selements array Map elements to replace the existing elements.
urls array Map URLs to replace the existing URLs.

To create map links between new map elements you'll need to set an elements selementid to an arbitrary value and then use this value to reference this element in the links selementid1 or selementid2 properties. When the element is created, this value will be replaced with the correct ID generated by Zabbix. See example for map.create.

Return values

(object) Returns an object containing the IDs of the updated maps under the sysmapids property.

Change the size of the map to 1200x1200 pixels.
