When creating a Discovery Rule, the item type for the discovery rule can't be a Dependant Item.
It would be nice to have a discovery rule based on an already existing item.
My use case scenario
I am creating a template for monitoring nginx traffic with an http agent item getting the traffic information from this module from nginx.
That http agent item gets all the information (in a json format) from the nginx server: zones, upstreams, etc etc and my idea is to parse the json and create items based on it (LLD).
With the current functionality of zabbix, I must create this http agent item as a Discovery Rule, parse it in order to discover the items, and then create a normal http agent item in order to feed the discovered items. This means, I need to check the metric twice.
It would be nice to be able to create the LLD rule as a dependant item, OR, create dependant items from a LLD rule. Any of this options would work for this scenario.
If I am missing something or if this is already possible somehow, please let me know.. I just started experimenting with the latest features of zabbix (old school zabbix user here).
