18 What's new in Zabbix 6.0.13

MariaDB 10.10 support

The maximum supported version for MariaDB is now 10.10.X.

TimescaleDB 2.9 support

The maximum supported version for TimescaleDB is now 2.9.

Configuration import

Previously, the import process would fail on a UUID mismatch of an importable entity (host group, item, graph, etc). For example, it was not possible to import a host group if a host group with the same name already existed on the host.

In the new version the import will not fail because of a UUID mismatch; instead the entity will be matched by the uniquenes criteria such as entity ID (name). The entity will be imported, and the UUID will be updated to the UUID of the imported entity.

In another improvement, when removing template linkage (the Delete missing option for template linkage) through the imported template or host, the inherited entities of the unlinked template are no longer removed (template gets unlinked, not unlinked and cleared), unless these entities are missing in the import file and the Delete missing option for the specific entity is marked.

Due to this change, the warning message when marking the Delete missing option for template linkage will no longer be displayed.

Retrieving additional information with docker.container_info[]

The docker.container_info[] Zabbix agent 2 item now supports the option to retrieve either partial (short) or full low-level information about a Docker container.

Runtime commands for profiling

Runtime commands for profiling have been added to Zabbix server and Zabbix proxy.

  • prof_enable - enable profiling
  • prof_disable - disable profiling

Profiling can be enabled per server/proxy process. Enabled profiling provides details of all rwlocks/mutexes by function name.

HMAC function for JavaScript

A new function has been added to the JavaScript engine allowing to return HMAC hash:

  • hmac('<hash type>',key,string)

This is useful for cases when hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) is required for signing requests. MD5 and SHA256 hash types are supported, e. g.:

  • hmac('md5',key,string)
  • hmac('sha256',key,string)


New templates are available:

  • AWS EC2 by HTTP
  • AWS by HTTP
  • AWS RDS instance by HTTP
  • AWS S3 bucket by HTTP
  • Control-M server by HTTP
  • Control-M enterprise manager by HTTP

See setup instructions for HTTP templates.

You can get these templates:

  • 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.

Webhook integrations

A new media type LINE is now available allowing to use the webhook feature for sending notifications about Zabbix events to LINE messenger.

Frontend languages

Catalan and Romanian languages are now enabled in the frontend.
