9 Upgrade notes for 4.4.0

Zabbix 4.4.0 is not released yet.

These notes are for upgrading from Zabbix 4.0.x to Zabbix 4.2.0. All notes are grouped into:

  • Critical - the most critical information related to the upgrade process and the changes in Zabbix functionality
  • Informational - all remaining information describing the changes in Zabbix functionality

It is possible to upgrade to Zabbix 4.2.0 from versions before Zabbix 4.0.0. See the upgrade procedure section for all relevant information about upgrading from previous Zabbix versions.

Critical

Jabber, Ez Texting media types removed

Jabber and Ez Texting media types for delivering notifications have been removed. If these media types are present in your existing installation, during the upgrade they will be replaced by a script media type with all relevant parameters preserved.

Informational

Screen element removed from screens

Zabbix screens no longer support the possibility to display another screen as a screen element. After the upgrade, all screen cells containing another screen will be empty.

The format of host/template export in XML/JSON has been changed. For more details, see What's new in 4.4.0.

Items table split

Realtime fields have been split from the items table into a new table called item_rtdata. See also What's new in 4.4.0.
