Choosing plugin version

Currently (in version 4.x.x) Grafana-Zabbix plugin supports Zabbix versions 4.x and 5.x. Zabbix 3.x is not supported anymore. Generally, latest plugin should work with latest Grafana version, but if you have any compatibility issue, try to downgrade to previous minor release of Grafana. It's also helpful to report (but use search first to avoid duplicating issues) compatibility issues to the GitHub.

Using grafana-cli tool

WARNING! The only reliable installation method is grafana-cli. Any other way should be treated as a workaround and doesn't provide any backward-compatibility guaranties.

From github releases

Starting from version 4.0, each plugin release on GitHub contains packaged plugin. To install it, go to releases page, pick release you want to get and click on Assests. Built plugin packaged into zip archive having name Download it, unpack into your Grafana plugins directory and restart grafana server. Each plugin package contains digital signature which allows Grafana to verify that plugin was published by it's owner and files are not modified.

Note: since plugin version 4.0, grafana-cli downloads plugin from GitHub release. So downloading plugin package manually, you get the same package as via grafana-cli.

From github repo

WARNING! This way doesn't work anymore (dist/ folder was removed from git). Use grafana-cli or build plugin from sources.

Building from sources

If you want to build a package yourself, or contribute - read building instructions.
