setting priority of alert from Zabbix send2opsgenie plugin

Hi All,


I have some Zabbix Actions created that run the send2opsgenie program for alerting opsgenie. The instructions for the Zabbix plugin (I'm running Zabbix 4.0) say to copy the following block into the "Commands" window of the Zabbix Action:

/home/opsgenie/oec/opsgenie-zabbix/send2opsgenie -triggerName='{TRIGGER.NAME}' -triggerId='{TRIGGER.ID}' -triggerStatus='{TRIGGER.STATUS}' -triggerSeverity='{TRIGGER.SEVERITY}' -triggerDescription='{TRIGGER.DESCRIPTION}' -triggerUrl='{TRIGGER.URL}' -triggerValue='{TRIGGER.VALUE}' -triggerHostGroupName='{TRIGGER.HOSTGROUP.NAME}' -hostName='{HOST.NAME}' -ipAddress='{IPADDRESS}' -eventId='{EVENT.ID}' -date='{DATE}' -time='{TIME}' -itemKey='{ITEM.KEY}' -itemValue='{ITEM.VALUE}' -recoveryEventStatus='{EVENT.RECOVERY.STATUS}'


This does create an alert with the necessary info in Opsgenie, but it creates it at Priority 3. I'd like to have some alerts at other priorities... is there a way to do that inside Zabbix?

Hi @Jeff Avila !


The best thing to do would be to edit the zabbix integration within Opsgenie to set the priority. So by default, when an alert is created via a Zabbix integration, it gets created as a P3 like you mentioned...

However, you can set the priority that zabbix alerts will be created as within the integration... (Note - this requires access to "Advanced integrations" in Opsgenie, which is available on the Standard and Enterprise plans)




If you want the priority to change depending on the context of the alert, you could setup multiple "Create Alert" actions there with filters, to set the priority accordingly.


For example...

If alert received from zabbix with trigger severity = CRITICAL, create an alert with priority = P1



Else, if alert received from zabbix with trigger severity = HIGH, create an alert with priority = P2



So that's how you can set the priority of alerts created in Opsgenie from zabbix, based on the values of the fields Zabbix is sending over.


Hope that helps!
