New Zabbix Item not showing in new dashboard

Hi,

I have setup a zabbix Item that interrogates a log and shows results. I have specified a new ‘application’ within the zabbix Item. Data are being correctly shown in ‘Latest data’ within the Zabbix GUI. I then created a new dashboard within Grafana and added a new query using the zabbix datasource. In the new query I could see the new application but nothing is showing in Item.

Grafana connects to zabbix with an LDAP account. I have logged into zabbix as the grafana user and confirmed I can view ‘latest data’ for the Item in question. I have ensured that read permissions are set for the group that the grafana user belongs to.

Anyone have any suggestions?

regards,

Doug

Hi,

This was my mistake!

In using data received from logs you have to specify ‘Text’ as the query Mode and Time series in ‘Format as’.
You can then select the Item. Use a table as visualization and all works.
