How to Create Zabbix Admin User | 2022

Create Zabbix Admin User: After initial installation, Zabbix has only two users defined. User “Admin” is a Zabbix superuser, which has full permissions. User “guest” is a special default user. If a user does not log in, the user will be accessing Zabbix with “guest” permissions. By default, “guest” has no permissions on Zabbix objects.

Log in and set up a system user in Zabbix.

This is the Zabbix “Welcome” screen. Enter the user name Admin with password zabbix to log in as a Zabbix superuser.

Initially there are only two users defined in Zabbix.

‘Admin’ user is a Zabbix superuser, which has full permissions.

You can specify a time period when the medium will be active (see Time period specification page for description of the format), by default a medium is always active. You can also customise severities for which the medium will be active, but leave all of them enabled for now. Click Add, then click Save in the user properties. The new user appears in the user list.

In this pop-up, enter an e-mail address for the user.
