    Description

      Background

      On the Zabbix Summit 2022 I made some suggestions regarding the names of Items and Triggers:

      As suggested hereby a new case to include these improvements. Related ticket: ZBXNEXT-7949


      Proposal

      In Zabbix the Dashboards / Maps / Actions are all sorting Alphabetically in their respected configuration/monitoring pages. Because of this in environments with a lot of different Dashboards / Maps / Actions we can lose track of stuff in the long lists.

       

      For Dashboards and Maps I always like to use the same "subgroup" kind of implementation that Host groups have. This way the Alphabetical sorting sorts things for us and it's easy to find stuff:

       

      Suggestion is to already apply this to the default Dashboards. We don't have a lot of them, but it could help already:

      Same thing for Maps:

      A similar design might be possible for Actions.
