8 What's new in Zabbix 5.2.3


A new systemd.unit.get[<unit name>,<interface>] item allows to retrieve all properties of a systemd unit. This item is supported by Zabbix agent 2 on Linux platforms only.

Time zone selection

Time zone selection fields have been improved in the following way:

  • The selection fields now have modern design
  • Time relative to UTC is prepended before the time zone name
  • 'System default' and 'System' options now also display full details (time relative to UTC and time zone name)

For example:

Time zone labels now Time zone labels before
(UTC+02:00) Europe/Riga Europe/Riga
System default: (UTC+02:00) Europe/Riga System default
System: (UTC+02:00) Europe/Riga System

GitLab monitoring template

The following template is now available for out-of-the-box monitoring:

You can get this template:

  • In ConfigurationTemplates in new installations;
  • If you are upgrading from previous versions, you can download new templates from Zabbix Git repository or find them in the templates directory of the downloaded latest Zabbix version. Then, while in ConfigurationTemplates you can import them manually into Zabbix.

Java gateway property file

A new zabbix.propertiesFile configuration parameter allows to specify a property file, which can be used to set additional properties in such a way that they are not visible on a command line or to overwrite existing ones.

Zabbix agent 2 plugins

Parameter structure for Zabbix agent 2 plugins has been updated:

  • For Ceph, Docker, Memcached, MySQL, Oracle, and Redis plugins, a Uri can now only be specified as a named session parameter.
  • For PostgreSQL plugin a Uri and Database name can now only be specified as a named session parameter.
  • For Uri parameters, specifying a scheme is no longer mandatory.

  • Max period GUI parameter has been renamed to Max period for time selector. This parameter is set in the Administration → General → GUI frontend section and determines the maximum available time period for graphs and dashboards.

  • Zabbix agent for Windows now substitutes SIDs with account name and domain name in event log messages.
