Zabbix user groups and user type

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

Like any product documentation, Zabbix’ is shattered and terse.

So here is how I ensured a specific user could edit the items of hosts:

  1. Added new user group named Administer Configuration Host Items containing user Example having these read-write composing permissions:
    • Applicatie ontwikkel test
    • Applicatie productie Approve demo VPN
    • servers Dbases Kantoor applicaties
  2. Changed User type of user named Example from Zabbix User to Zabbix Admin so access to the Configuration tab is granted.

See 2 Permissions [Zabbix Documentation 3.0] for User type explanation; excerpt:

Zabbix Admin: The user has access to the Monitoring and Configuration menus. The user has no access to any host groups by default. Any permissions to host groups must be explicitly given.
