    Description

      Hi,

      So, when building repetitive templates I'm doing some manual changes to XML files once in a while. With the implementation of UUID's in Zabbix 6.0, the workflow has been broken because you'll have to generate and update the UUID's manually as well.

       

      Normally I could do a quick search and replace to add some more items for example, making it quick. Now I need to manually add UUID's.

       

      Proposal:

       

      If I set the value in the file as follows:

       

      uuid: EMPTY

      Zabbix should be smart enough to generate new UUID's upon template import. From there they will be unique, but it allows us to still do a quick search and replace when building a template manually in the YAML files.
