Since the feature is new i can’t find a solution. so if someone is familiar please help me fix it and enable the report manager.


Solution

You need to enable report writer in server config.
In /etc/zabbix/zabbix_server.conf (assuming you are running Zabbix on a Linux machine) change the value of StartReportWriters to at least 1, then restart the server.

Edit

You also need to set WebServiceURL parameter in zabbix_server.conf. The URL should be in format <host>:<port>/report. Default port is 10053.

WebServiceURL=http://localhost:10053/report

/report path is mandatory and hardcoded, and so can not be changed.

Next, Frontend URL parameter must be set. Go to Administration → General → Other parameters, and specify the full URL of the Zabbix web interface in the Frontend URL parameter.
