I got a report after Skyline ran for a day... It is empty - no data in anything. I assume this is correct since it only ran for less than 24 hours?
Skyline Advisor has now gone live, and the link has also been enabled on MyVMware. Skyline Advisor is the analytic dashboard for VMware Skyline customers to look up proactive findings and monitor the health of their environments. It is delivered to customers as a SaaS platform through the My VMware portal.
Follow these steps to access Skyline Advisor:
1. Open a web-browser and browse to My VMware (https://my.vmware.com).
2. Log in to My VMware using your username and password.
3. Click Support (located next to the Search box), then click Skyline Advisor.
4. If you are receiving proactive support today with Skyline, you will automatically be directed to the Skyline Advisor homepage.
With the release of Skyline Advisor, Production Support customers will be able to access their proactive findings and recommendations within Skyline Advisor only and will no longer receive Operational Summary Reports.
Skyline Advisor comes with features and functionalities that include: A Skyline Advisor Homepage, Account Details page, a breakdown of a number of Proactive Findings based upon the level of severity and category, and OSR Library page.

Hello fritschn and team,
Thanks for this report - very useful. However, I hesitate when thinking about presenting this to management, and non-technical staff. On first glance all one sees is red! (My report reads that 75% of the VMware environment is in a 'critical' state - looks like I'm not doing a very good job!)
I'd feel much more confident if it was presented in context. I think that you are checking 85 'rules'? Might I make the suggestion (see screenshot below) to show this context in the graph?

I have delete my Skyline VA but i get still notification mails that a report is ready for download.
Can i disable that?
Hi ldclancy, apologies for the delay in response, I've been out of the office on family leave. Thank you for the feedback. Now that Skyline Advisor is available, we are thinking about ways to transform the Operational Summary Report (OSR), including presenting different information and/or a summary of information available within Skyline Advisor. I'll include your feedback in this ongoing discussion. If you have any additional feedback, please let me know. Thank you.
