I'm having trouble trying to get a dashboard working in a report and I'm hoping someone out here may have an answer or suggestion. I've created a custom datacenter which includes a number of clusters from various datacenters. I then created a custom dashboard to include the traditional "Capacity Remaining" & "Reclaimable Capacity" widgets. I turned both to self-provider is on and pre-selected the custom datacenter. After saving the dashboard and opening it, the data populates as expected.
Now, I created a Report and just selected that one new Dashboard and I attempted to run to report against that custom datacenter. It comes back with no data in the report.
Anyone have any ideas why the dashboard works outside the report but not inside?
So after a lot of trial and error I seem to have made some progress.
The Reclaimable Capacity widget does not work at all in the report, under any configuration I try. So I removed it from the dashboard.
The Capacity Remaining will work in the report if I leave the selected object blank and turn self-provider OFF.
