If you want some operations taking place as a result of events (for example, notifications sent), you need to configure actions.
Actions can be defined for the events of all three sources:
To configure an action, do the following:
General action attributes:
|Name||Unique action name.|
|Default operation step duration||Duration of one operation step by default (minimum 60 seconds).
For example, an hour-long step duration means that if an operation is carried out, an hour will pass before the next step.
Naming before Zabbix 2.0.2: Default escalation period
|Default subject||Default message subject. The subject may contain macros.|
|Default message||Default message. The message may contain macros.|
|Recovery message||Mark the checkbox to turn on a Recovery message.
Recovery message is a special way of getting notified for a resolved problem. If turned on, only a single message with a custom subject/body is sent if trigger value changes to OK.
Note: To receive a recovery message, “Trigger value=Problem” must be present in action conditions; “Trigger value=OK”, however, must not be present. (If “Trigger value=OK” is set, the recovery message will not work; instead you will get a full escalation of defined messages and/or remote commands in the same way as for a problem situation).
Recovery message will be sent only to those who received any messages regarding the problem before.
|Recovery subject||Recovery message subject. It may contain macros.|
|Recovery message||Recovery message. It may contain macros. Starting with Zabbix 2.0.4, recovery message can also be left empty.|
|Enabled||Mark the checkbox to enable the action. Otherwise it will be disabled.|
