Lightbulb Certification Tracking System

Generally to provide access to third parties (employers, customers, etc) to verify certifications by cert number.


There is no suitable project in Jira, so I'll just leave this here.

You can monitor over zabbix anything you want as long as you are able to preset it in forma of the metric with values as scalar integer, float or string.
In other words you can implement on top of existing standard zabbix your certs monitoring.
All what you need is template which will implement such monitoring.

Templates are not fundamental part of the zabbix stack.
With standard installation comes few templates which are kind of examples.
You can delete all those templates and use you own set of those templates.

Instead asking to build-in verify certification monitoring you just should form question about how to define zabbix item(s) definition(s) to have such monitoring ..but not here because this section of the zabbix forum is not about such discussions.

Tomasz, thank you for the detailed answer, but I'm not tolking about monitoring process via any NMS.

It is about online verification service to allow someone to authenticate that the actual "Zabbix Certified Specialist/for Large Enveronments" certificate was really issued to you.

E.g., CiscoCertificates tool:
http://www.ciscocertificates.com/verify.cfm

Microsoft MCP Transcript validation page:
https://mcp.microsoft.com/Anonymous/Transcript/Validate

and so on with Oracle, VMware, Citrix, etc.

As I wrote you can monitor what ever you want .. event behavior bunch o dwarfs as long as behavior of exact individuals you would be able represent as numbers or strings.
If you have let's say command which is producing output and this output is number or string you can start using collect those outputs as monitoring data stored in zabbix stack. On to of such raw data you can ad alarming layer (triggers) and add even such monitoring data presentation layer (graphs, dashboards).
In other words .. zabbix it is not monitoring software on some very specific area. No, it is general propose monitoring software with OOTB support to monitoring typical IT infrastructure. On top of this you can find in many places many templates which are sometimes way out of original build-in support.

Tomasz, I see some misunderstanding..

I speak about ZABBIX TRAINING SERVICES
When someone passes Training Courses he receives corresponding Certifacete with Document number or ID.
Then someone else (employers, customers, etc) might want to check any cert is not a fake. And.. AFAIK, there is only one way to do this - email to Zabbix SIA and ask them. But other SW vendors has online tools, which is much more convenient.
