  • Zabbix Manual
    • Screenshots

Also discussed

  • Disabled hosts will be visible to anyone having permissions. There will be no global option which would control visibility of disabled hosts.
    • "Simpler" is the main reason for this: easy to understand, code, explain and no hidden dependency on a global switch. It can be extended in the future if needed.
  • Other pages won't be affected: screens, dashboard, etc
  • Disabled hosts will not be displayed in the data overview page, no changes there.
  • No changes for the global search result page.
