Zabbix web service is a process that is used for communication with external web services. Currently, Zabbix web service is used for generating and sending scheduled reports with plans to add additional functionality in the future.
Zabbix server connects to the web service via HTTP(S). Zabbix web service requires Google Chrome to be installed on the same host; on some distributions the service may also work with Chromium (see known issues) .
Zabbix web service is available in pre-compiled Zabbix packages available for download at Zabbix website. To compile Zabbix web service from sources, specify the
--enable-webservice configure option.
