    • Type: Problem report
    • Status: Confirmed
    • Priority: Trivial
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 5.0.5
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Documentation (D)
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      Debian 10 amd64
      Zabbix 5.0.5
      SNMPv3

      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Want to monitor a device via SNMPv3
      2. Read the docs
      3. Compare Authentication and Privacy settings between Zabbix Frontend and the device
      4. Zabbix offers SHA and AES without and hint about the details.
      5. The device expects an exact match by specifying which SHA and AES exactly

      Result:
      I can select SHA, but I don't know what SHA exactly.
      I can select AES, but I don't know what AES exactly.
      The connection fails. See screenshots.


      Expected:
      Like in the switch config, I expect from Zabbix Frontend and/or Zabbix Docs, that it's explained what SHA/AES exactly I choose, so I can match my settings regarding the device.
