At the moment this app is only available for IOS. We are currently working on version for Android and Windows phones and it will be released soon.

Not necessarily. If for example a team works with the same alert notifications it is useful that all their devices are registered with the same account. Therefore it is ensured that all team members will see the same notifications. If it is necessary that different sets of alert notifications should be received with more different devices, an equivalent amount of accounts would be needed.

Only one account can be active for every device, therefore only the push-notifications of this account will be shown.

The app itself is free of charge. As the development and operation of this high-performance backend unfortunately cannot be provided for free, we are charging a small fee for the receiving of notifications. The fee can be paid via InApp purchase. The price is calculated based on the number of users and the related volume.

With the InApp purchases you can also subscribe to our services. Those subscriptions also offer a price advantage compared to the prepaid packages.

This app is not limited to the use of a particular software. Over our API alert notifications can be sent with any desired tool that allows JSON-Requests. With curl and wget, for example as well as with programming languages like Perl, HTTP sending notifications is possible.

Sending messages with curl is very simple:

curl -XPOST \
  https://api.zbxalert.com/v1/message \
  -H "X-ZBXalertAPI-Token: fyvfDt4pat1kaGFSkmy1f1BnHgkSKP0c..." \
  -H "X-API-KEY: ..." \
  --data-urlencode recipient="14t14k44-1ddb-7dkb-z086-jfe0o2cfbaby" \
  --data-urlencode identifier="inst1" \
  --data-urlencode eventid=12363 \
  --data-urlencode state=1 \
  --data-urlencode severity=3 \
  --data-urlencode title="Test Title" \
  --data-urlencode text="Test Text" \
  --data-urlencode hostname="hostname1" \
  --data-urlencode hostgroup="hostgroup1" \
  --data-urlencode hosttype="hosttype1"

While sending a alert notification a message-ID as well as the status will be returned. With this message-ID the sender can check the actual status of the notification, e.g. if it has been received, read or deleted.
