    Description

      There is no simple way to get item value type now

       

      value_type
      (required) integer Type of information of the item.
      Possible values:
      0 - numeric float;
      1 - character;
      2 - log;
      3 - numeric unsigned;
      4 - text.
      

       

      from Zabbix now - only with Zabbix API Usage or SQL queries.

       

      It is a complicated way to achieve a simple task - we just have to know - what is the value type for an item. It could be really helpful to make data-sending scripts to third-party scripts easier.

      Is it possible to create macro like

      {ITEM.VALUETYPE}

      into next Zabbix releases?
