12 What's new in Zabbix 6.2.7

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.

Encrypted MongoDB plugin connection

MongoDB plugin now supports TLS encryption when connecting to MongoDB using named sessions.

Updated plugin (MongoDB plugin 1.2.1) is included into Zabbix official packages starting from Zabbix 6.2.7. Note that MongoDB is a loadable plugin and can be installed separately either from packages or from sources. The plugin will work with any minor version of Zabbix 6.2. For more details see MongoDB plugin.
