Features

  • Graphs based on latest data are sent directly to your messenger
  • You can send messages both in private and group/supergroup chats
  • Channels support (only public, but you can do it for private as well with dirty hack)
  • Saves chatid as a temporary file
  • Simple markdown and HTML are supported
  • Emoji (you can use emoji instead of severity, see the wiki article) (zabbix doesn't support utf8mb4 encoding yet)
  • Location map

TODOs

  • Simple zabbix's management via bot's commands – in dev state
  • Ability to send complex graph or part of screen

Configuration / Installation

READ WIKI IF YOU HAVE PROBLEM WITH SOMETHING: https://github.com/ableev/Zabbix-in-Telegram/wiki

First of all: You need to install the appropriate modules for python, this is required for operation!
To do so, enter pip install -r requirements.txt in your commandline!

  • Put zbxtg.py in your AlertScriptsPath directory, the path is set inside your zabbix_server.conf
  • Put zbxtg_group.py in the same location if you want to send messages to the group chat (if you are using Zabbix 2.x version)
  • Create zbxtg_settings.py (copy it from zbxtg_settings.example.py) with your settings and save them in the same directory as the script, see example for layout
  • Create a bot in Telegram and get API key: https://core.telegram.org/bots#creating-a-new-bot
  • Create readonly user in Zabbix web interface (for getting graphs from zabbix)
  • Set proxy host:port in zbxtg_settings.py if you need an internet proxy (socks5 supported as well, the wiki will help you)
  • Add new media for Telegram in Zabbix web interface with these settings:

  • Add another one if you want to send messages to the group

Last value: {ITEM.LASTVALUE1} ({TIME})
zbxtg;graphs
zbxtg;graphs_period=10800
zbxtg;itemid:{ITEM.ID1}
zbxtg;title:{HOST.HOST} - {TRIGGER.NAME}

  • Add the appropriate Media Type to your user

  • The username is CASE-SENSITIVE

  • If you don't have a username, you can use your chatid directly (and you need to google how to get it)

  • Group chats don't have URLs, so you need to put group's name in media type

  • Messages for channels should be sent as for private chats (simply add bot to your channel first and use channel's username as if it was a real user)

  • Private:

  • Group:

Annotations

zbxtg;graphs -- enables attached graphs
zbxtg;graphs_period=10800 -- set graphs period (default - 3600 seconds)
zbxtg;graphs_width=700 -- set graphs width (default - 900px)
zbxtg;graphs_height=300 -- set graphs height (default - 300px)
zbxtg;itemid:{ITEM.ID1} -- define itemid (from trigger) for attach
zbxtg;itemid:{ITEM.ID1},{ITEM.ID2},{ITEM.ID3} -- same, but if you want to send two or more graphs, use complex trigger
zbxtg;title:{HOST.HOST} - {TRIGGER.NAME} -- graph's title
zbxtg;debug -- enables debug mode, some logs and images will be saved in the tmp dir (temporary doesn't affect python version)
zbxtg;channel -- enables sending to channels
zbxtg;to:username1,username2,username3 -- now you don't need to create dedicated profiles and add media for them, use this option in action to send messages to those user(s)
zbxtg;to_group:Group Name One,Group Name Two -- the same but for groups

You can use markdown or html formatting in your action: https://core.telegram.org/bots/api#markdown-style + https://core.telegram.org/bots/api#html-style.

Debug

  • You can use the following command to send a message from your command line:
    ./zbxtg.py "@username" "first part of a message" "second part of a message" --debug
  • For @username substitute your Telegram username, NOT that of your bot (case-sensitive) OR chatid
  • For first part of a message and second part of a message just substitute something like "test" "test" (for Telegram it's doesn't matter between subject and body)
  • You can skip the " if it's one word for every parameter, these are optional
