Zabbix version: 2.0

Is there any way to run action(remote command) manualy from web interface? I didn't find any

Such a feature immediately strikes me across the face with BIG GAPING SECURITY HOLE... – voretaq7 Nov 26 '12 at 23:38
Why? Zabbiox supports remote commands, if agent is configured respectively. I just want to run it manualy, not on a trigger change. – Selivanov Pavel Nov 27 '12 at 5:40
Exposing unrestricted remote commands in general is always a security hole (be it Zabbix, Nagios, or SNMP). Doing it via a web interface is doubly bad. – voretaq7 Nov 27 '12 at 16:05
Only administrator should have access to web interface. Yes, Zabbix is central place for administrative access, compromising it can lead to loss of all infrastructure. And so are Bacula, Puppet, Active Directory, ... It's not a security hole, it's desing particularity – Selivanov Pavel Nov 27 '12 at 17:31
