Zabbix::API::Trigger -- Zabbix trigger objects

Handles CRUD for Zabbix trigger objects.
This is a subclass of
Zabbix::API::CRUDE; see there for inherited methods.
Returns true if the trigger exists with this description, false otherwise.

The value returned is an arrayref of

expression data attribute stored in
Zabbix::API::Trigger instances is actually an expression ID. This is what the web API returns. Expressions are also not mapped by the web API, so this is all you get (well, you can get the list of hosts and items mentioned in the expression). If you plan on using this distribution to manipulate trigger expressions, a workaround is to have the trigger just use a calculated item in a very simple expression, since items work as expected.
Since the web API does not expose a method through which dependencies can be removed individually, the
remove_dependency method works around this by deleting all dependencies then adding back the rest.
