In the Alerts → Actions section users can configure and maintain actions.
The actions displayed are actions assigned to the selected event source (trigger, services, discovery, autoregistration, internal actions).
Actions are grouped into subsections by event source (trigger, service, discovery, autoregistration, internal actions). The list of available subsections appears upon clicking on Actions in the Alerts menu section. It is also possible to switch between subsections by using the title dropdown in the top left corner.
After selecting a subsection, a list of existing actions with their details will be displayed.
|Name||Name of the action. Clicking on the action name opens the action configuration form.|
|Conditions||Action conditions are displayed.|
|Operations||Action operations are displayed.
Since Zabbix 2.2, the operation list also displays the media type (e-mail, SMS or script) used for notification as well as the name and surname (in parentheses after the username) of a notification recipient.
Action operation can both be a notification or a remote command depending on the selected type of operation.
|Status||Action status is displayed - Enabled or Disabled.
By clicking on the status you can change it.
See the Escalations section for more details as to what happens if an action is disabled during an escalation in progress.
To configure a new action, click on the Create action button in the top right-hand corner.
