The item list for a host can be accessed from Data collection → Hosts by clicking on Items for the respective host.
A list of existing items is displayed.

This column is displayed only if multiple hosts are selected in the filter.

Clicking on the item name link opens the item configuration form.
If the host item belongs to a template, the template name is displayed before the item name as a gray link. Clicking on the template link will open the item list on the template level.
If the item has been created from an item prototype, its name is preceded by the low-level discovery rule name, in orange. Clicking on the discovery rule name will open the item prototype list.
|Triggers||Moving the mouse over Triggers will display an infobox displaying the triggers associated with the item.
The number of the triggers is displayed in gray.

Up to three tags (name:value pairs) can be displayed. If there are more tags, a "..." link is displayed that allows to see all tags on mouseover.

Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:

The Filter icon is available at the top right corner. Clicking on it will open a filter where you can specify the desired filtering criteria.
|Host groups||Filter by one or more host groups.
Specifying a parent host group implicitly selects all nested host groups.
Host groups containing templates only cannot be selected.

|Tags||Specify tags to limit the number of items displayed. It is possible to include as well as exclude specific tags and tag values. Several conditions can be set. Tag name matching is always case-sensitive.
There are several operators available for each condition:
Exists - include the specified tag names
Equals - include the specified tag names and values (case-sensitive)
Contains - include the specified tag names where the tag values contain the entered string (substring match, case-insensitive)
Does not exist - exclude the specified tag names
Does not equal - exclude the specified tag names and values (case-sensitive)
Does not contain - exclude the specified tag names where the tag values contain the entered string (substring match, case-insensitive)
There are two calculation types for conditions:
And/Or - all conditions must be met, conditions having the same tag name will be grouped by the Or condition
Or - enough if one condition is met
|State||Filter by item state - Normal or Not supported.|
|Status||Filter by item status - Enabled or Disabled.|

The Subfilter below the filter offers further filtering options (for the data already filtered). You can select groups of items with a common parameter value. Upon clicking on a group, it gets highlighted and only the items with this parameter value remain in the list.
