    Description

      We apply zabbix template to the server using the "import" option available in UI. Say, template A is linked with another template B and the templates are applied to the zabbix server.

      In the next version/release :
      Template A is no longer associated with B
      Template A is linked with a new template C
      Items from B has been moved to C (C is a superset of B).

      Now if I try to import the latest version of the template (A -> C) on top of older version (A -> B) from the "import" option in UI, I get the following error :

      Item "<Item_Key>" already exists on "<Template_Name>", inherited from another template.

      But, as you can understand, in the latest version of the template (A -> C), template B is no longer there and hence there is no question of conflict between items in B and C.
