 +==== 5 Actions ====
 +=== Overview ===
 +In the //​Configuration -> Actions// section users can configure and maintain actions.
 +A listing of existing actions with their details is displayed. The actions displayed are actions assigned to the selected event source (triggers, discovery, auto-registration).
 +To view actions assigned to a different event source, change the source from the dropdown to the right in the //Actions// bar.
 +For users without Super-admin rights actions are displayed according to permission settings. ​ That means in some cases a user without Super-admin rights isn’t able to view the complete ​ action list because of certain permission restrictions.
 +An action is displayed to the user without Super-admin rights if the following conditions are fulfilled: ​
 +  * The user has read-write access to all selected elements in the new condition (host, host group, trigger, etc.);
 +  * The user is a member of all the user groups notifications are sent to. Otherwise this user will not be able to view this action. ​
 +Displayed data:
 +|//​Name// ​ |Name of the action. Clicking on the action name opens the action [[manual:​config:​notifications:​action#​configuring_an_action|configuration form]]. ​ |
 +|//​Conditions// ​ |Action conditions are displayed. ​  |
 +|//​Operations// ​ |Action operations are displayed.\\ Since Zabbix 2.2, the operation list also displays the media type (e-mail, SMS, Jabber, etc) used for notification as well as the name and surname (in parentheses after the alias) of a notification recipient. ​ |
 +|//​Status// ​ |Action status is displayed - //Enabled// or //​Disabled//​.\\ By clicking on the status you can change it.\\ If an action is disabled during an escalation in progress (like a message being sent), the message in progress will be sent and then one more message on the escalation will be sent. The follow-up message will have the following text at the beginning of the message body: //NOTE: Escalation cancelled: action '<​Action name>'​ disabled//. This way the recipient is informed that the escalation is cancelled and no more steps will be executed. ​ |
 +To configure a new action, click on the //Create action// button in the top right-hand corner.
 +== Mass editing options ==
 +A dropdown below the list offers some mass-editing options:
 +  * //Enable selected// - change the action status to //Enabled//
 +  * //Disable selected// - change the action status to //​Disabled//​
 +  * //Delete selected// - delete the actions
 +To use these options, mark the check-boxes before the respective actions, then select the required option and click on "​Go"​.
