      Description

      Attempting to import an XML configuration for a web scenario + trigger template using the Zabbix API, but the import fails when verifying the trigger.

      Here are the details of the request being made to the API and the error returned:

      failed: [127.0.0.1] (item=services/website.xml.j2) => {

              </trigger>
          </triggers>
      </zabbix_export>
      

      The XML should be ok as I manually created the template with web scenario and trigger on an existing Zabbix server then exported the XML from there.

      I can also import this XML successfully using the Zabbix frontend, but when trying to import through the API it fails.
