  • zabbix-api >= 0.5.4

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

http_login_password

string

Basic Auth password

http_login_user

string

Basic Auth login

login_password

string / required

Zabbix user password.

If not set the environment variable ZABBIX_PASSWORD will be used.

login_user

string / required

Zabbix user name.

If not set the environment variable ZABBIX_USERNAME will be used.

server_url

aliases: url

string / required

URL of Zabbix server, with protocol (http or https). url is an alias for server_url.

If not set the environment variable ZABBIX_SERVER will be used.

timeout

integer

The timeout of API request (seconds).

Default: 10

tls_accept

list / elements=string / required

Type of allowed incoming connections for autoregistration.

Choose from unsecure, tls_with_psk or both.

tls_psk

string

TLS connection uses this PSK value.

This setting requires tls_accept=tls_with_psk if current value of tls_accept is unsecure.

tls_psk_identity

string

TLS connection uses this PSK identity string.

The PSK identity string will be transmitted unencrypted over the network. Therefore, you should not put any sensitive information here.

This setting requires tls_accept=tls_with_psk if current value of tls_accept is unsecure.

validate_certs

boolean

If set to False, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

If not set the environment variable ZABBIX_VALIDATE_CERTS will be used.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • Only Zabbix >= 4.4 is supported.

  • This module returns changed=true when any value is set in tls_psk_identity or tls_psk as Zabbix API will not return any sensitive information back for module to compare.

  • Please note that this module configures global Zabbix Server settings. If you want to create autoregistration action so your hosts can automatically add themselves to the monitoring have a look at community.zabbix.zabbix_action.

  • If you use login_password=zabbix, the word “zabbix” is replaced by “********” in all module output, because login_password uses no_log. See this FAQ for more information.
