It is possible to search Zabbix frontend for hosts, host groups and templates.
If there is a host that starts with the entered string, a dropdown will appear, listing all such hosts.
Starting with Zabbix 4.2.1, if there is a host that contains the entered string in any part of the name, a dropdown will appear, listing all such hosts (with the matching part highlighted in orange). The dropdown will also list a host if that host's visible name is a match to the technical name entered as a search string; the matching host will be listed, but without any highlighting.
Hosts can be searched by the following properties:
Host groups can be searched by name. Specifying a parent host group implicitly selects all nested host groups.
Templates can be searched by name or visible name. If you search by a name that is different from the visible name (of a template/host), in the search results it is displayed below the visible name in parentheses.
Search results consist of three separate blocks for hosts, host groups and templates.
It is possible to collapse/expand each individual block. The entry count is displayed at the bottom of each block, for example, Displaying 13 of 13 found. Total entries displayed within one block are limited to 100.
Each entry provides links to monitoring and configuration data. See links available.
For all configuration data (such as items, triggers, graphs) the amount of entities found is displayed by a number next to the entity name, in grey. Note that if there are zero entities, no number is displayed.
Enabled hosts are displayed in blue, disabled hosts in red.
For each entry the following links are available:
