Acknowledgement alerts

ZBXNEXT-18

Status: Initial draft, do not comment

Owner: Alexei

Summary

It is not possible to send any alerts on acknowledgement of a trigger. This functionality is really important and should be supported by Zabbix.

Front-end changes

Configuration of trigger actions

New fields in tab 'Action' placed after existing 'Default message'

 Acknowledgement subject [     ] # input box, same as for 'Default subject'
 Acknowledgement message [     ] # text area, same as for 'Default message'

New options for operation placed after 'Operation type' only if 'Send message' selected

 Send: <Message>/<Message + all acknowledgements>/<Message + 1st acknowledgement only>/<All acknowledgements only>/<1st acknowledgement only> # drop-down
 Send acknowledgements till step: [0]

Server changes

A new Zabbix server process will process new acknowledgements and generate new events.

Event details:

 Source: EVENT_SOURCE_TRIGGERS
 Object: EVENT_OBJECT_ACKNOWLEDGE
 Object ID: acknowledge ID
 Value: 0 - first acknowledgement, 1 - for all following acknowledgements
