This section provides instructions on installing Zabbix web service and configuring Zabbix to enable generation of scheduled reports.
Currently the support of scheduled reports is experimental.
A new Zabbix web service process and Google Chrome browser should be installed to enable generation of scheduled reports. The web service may be installed on the same machine where the Zabbix server is installed or on a different machine. Google Chrome browser should be installed on the same machine, where the web service is installed.

Once the setup procedure is completed, you may want to configure and send a test report to make sure everything works correctly.
O pacote oficial zabbix-web-service está disponível no Zabbix repositório. O navegador Google Chrome não é incluído nesses pacotes e deve ser instalado separadamente.
