Intro

Zabbix is enterprise open source monitoring software for networks and applications designed to monitor and track the status of various network services, servers, and other network hardware. Use Domo's Zabbix connector to retrieve data about Zabbix entities such as alerts, discovered hosts and services, scripts, triggers, and more. To learn more about the Zabbix API, visit their page (https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/3.0/manual/api).

You connect to your Zabbix account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Zabbix connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your Zabbix account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • A Zabbix username and password

  • The host URL for your Zabbix front end

Connecting to Your Zabbix Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Zabbix Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Zabbix account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  

Field

Description

Username

Enter your Zabbix username.

Password

Once you have entered valid Zabbix credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Zabbix DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
