For diophantine equations of the form $ax^2+bxy+cy^2+g=0$ over $\mathbb{Z}$ whose coefficients satisfy some assumptions, we show that a condition with respect to the Artin reciprocity map, which we call the Artin condition, is the only obstruction to the local-global principle for integral solutions of the equation. Some concrete examples are presented.
