Integrate Opsgenie with Zabbix

Zabbix integration diagram

Opsgenie provides a bi-directional integration plugin for Zabbix. Opsgenie provides a number of easy to use integration methods (email, API, command line tools, programming libraries, etc.) to ensure all monitoring tools can be easily integrated with Opsgenie. Zabbix can also be integrated with Opsgenie via the email interface, by using Opsgenie lamp CLI utility, or by executing scripts in any language that use Opsgenie Web API. This document describes two primary integration options.

1. Integration using Opsgenie Zabbix Plugin

Opsgenie Zabbix plugin supports bi-directional integration with Zabbix. Integration leverages Opsgenie’s Zabbix-specific executable and Opsgenie Edge Connector (OEC) utilities to automatically create rich alerts and synchronize alert status between Zabbix and Opsgenie. Plus, Zabbix alarms can be acknowledged automatically when the alert is acknowledged in Opsgenie. Opsgenie Zabbix plugin is the recommended integration method as it enables Zabbix to take advantage of advanced capabilities provided by Opsgenie.

2. Integration via Email

Zabbix can deliver alerts via email. Use Opsgenie’s email integration to forward Zabbix alerts to Opsgenie to notify users. Zabbix documentation describes how to configure Zabbix email alerts. Opsgenie can process these emails, create alerts in Opsgenie and notify users as described here.
