Use the Zabbix data source,How to configure Grafana alerts

I hve to use the zabbix datasource and want to config grafana alerting and webhook notification. But only some data sources are supported right now(Graphite, Prometheus, InfluxDB and OpenTSDB). what should I do?

Hi! Unfortunately, you cannot create alert rules in Grafana for Zabbix now. After implementing backend plugins it would be possible.

News? I like alert with Grafana, but i use data source Zabbix.

Just so no one bombards you with this being a half year old thread, I too would like to know if this feature will be implemented anytime soon. I ask because currently various DB Datasources can alert, so it would make sense that if Zabbix was configured to use DB Queries that it too could alert. I’m unfamiliar with the structure of this plugin to make it work, but I would be more than happy to help Alex

As far as I understand it’s still not possible to send notifications from Zabbix data source, right?

Alerting execution engine
The alert rules are evaluated in the Grafana backend in a scheduler and query execution engine that is part of core Grafana. Only some data soures are supported right now. They include Graphite, Prometheus, InfluxDB and OpenTSDB.

Would it be possible to somehow update a Graphite or InfluxDB data source with Zabbix data?
