On several occassins I've found it to be very usefull to create tags with an unique ID. For instance when sending data from Zabbix towards external ticketing/alerting systems.
The easiest way to do so is of course grabbing a number like Trigger or Event ID. But these are in long number formats, which do not work with every external tool.
It would be an amazing addition to Zabbix to have the option to create an unique number directly in Zabbix. There could be a system built into LLD to facilitate this for instance. The options I think this would need is:
- A place where we can select a start and end number
- The option to select how many digits the number can use be before starting back at 0. (0001 or 01)
- Possibly the option to use nummeric or alphanumeric options
