8 Screens

Overview

In the Monitoring → Screens section you can configure, manage and view Zabbix screens and slide shows.

When you open this section, you will either see the last screen/slide show you accessed or a listing of all entities you have access to. Screen/slide show listing can be filtered by name.

Since Zabbix 3.0 all screens/slide shows can be either public or private. The public ones are available to all users, while private ones are accessible only to their owner and the users the entity is shared with.

Use the dropdown in the title bar to switch between screens and slide shows.

Referencing a screen

Screens can be referenced by both elementid and screenname GET parameters. For example,

http://zabbix/zabbix/screens.php?screenname=Zabbix%20server

will open the screen with that name (Zabbix server).

If both elementid (screen ID) and screenname (screen name) are specified, screenname has higher priority.
