OpenWeatherMap by HTTP

Overview

This template is designed for the effortless deployment of OpenWeatherMap monitoring by Zabbix via HTTP and doesn't require any external scripts.

Requirements

Zabbix version: 6.4 and higher.

Tested versions

This template has been tested on:

  • OpenWeatherMap API

Configuration

Zabbix should be configured according to instructions in the Templates out of the box section.

Setup

  1. Create a host.

  2. Link the template to the host.

  3. Customize the values of {$OPENWEATHERMAP.API.TOKEN} and {$LOCATION} macros.
    OpenWeatherMap API Tokens are available in your OpenWeatherMap account https://home.openweathermap.org/api_keys.
    Locations can be set by few ways:

    • by geo coordinates (for example: 56.95,24.0833)
    • by location name (for example: Riga)
    • by location ID. Link to the list of city ID: http://bulk.openweathermap.org/sample/city.list.json.gz
    • by zip/post code with a country code (for example: 94040,us) A few locations can be added to the macro at the same time by | delimiter. For example: 43.81821,7.76115|Riga|2643743|94040,us. Please note that API requests by city name, zip-codes and city id will be deprecated soon.

    Language and units macros can be customized too if necessary. List of available languages: https://openweathermap.org/current#multi. Available units of measurement are: standard, metric and imperial https://openweathermap.org/current#data.
