Zabbix alerts are not acknowledged through OpsGenie Edge Connector (oec)

We have installed the OpsGenie WebHook integration with Zabbix, and the OpsGenie Edge Connector.

With this, Zabbix sends alerts to OpsGenie as it should, however alerts acknowledged in OpsGenie are not acknowled in Zabbix. In looking at the Activity Log for the alert in OpsGenie, I can see that the error seems to be originating from the script:

"/home/opsgenie/oec/scripts/", line 138, in <module> main() File "/home/opsgenie/oec/scripts/", line 109, in main "eventids": alert_response.json()['data']['details']['eventId'], KeyError: 'eventId'

I have opened a support case with Atlassian. Has anyone encountered/resolved this issue?

Hi John!


This is Justin, the engineer who worked on the original support ticket you opened - I just wanted to add an answer here, in case anyone else runs into a similar issue. 


The root problem here was due to a mixing of Opsgenie's provided integration and Zabbix' native Opsgenie notification method, outlined here:


To use Opsgenie with OEC (which is required for full bi-directional communication), you'll want to be sure to use the notification method described here:


which triggers a script that sends to Opsgenie's Zabbix integration endpoint, and importantly includes the required 'eventId' property, which is used for the OEC integration. When using Zabbix' webhook notification method, the 'eventId' property is not included, thus breaking some of the functionality that allows us to make updates *back* to the source alert in Zabbix.


In the case here, once we added the notification action and command to use the provided script to send to Opsgenie, the full bi-directional flow did begin to work as expected. 


Having said that, if you (or anyone else) runs into a similar issue, please let me know!
