i'm currently building a MP for NSX-T to get IPSecVPN Sessions into vROPS.
I'm able to get the data for each session, but i struggle to create the relationship to the parent.
The matching reference of the parent is not a 1:1 match.
The parent has an "ID" inside vROPS, but the MP Builder get a "parent_path" which includes the "ID" of the parent
Is there any way to us the substring of "parent_path" to create a relationship?
We don't currently have a way to match based on a substring. We're looking to add this functionality in the next release.
Do you need both the full path and the parent ID as distinct properties on the object? Or do you just need the parent ID?
i need the parent ID only to match the objects.
We are currently moving our complete billing process for our private cloud to vROPS and have to connect many external sources. My experice is that is very rare to have exacly the same identifier as a "single" variable 100% identical in both worlds (vROPS and external source).
Often the external source string is part of a larger string.
Complex relationship matching including regex and combining multiple object properties is available in Management Pack Builder v1.1 which can be downloaded here.
