I am trying to create dashboards to ensure that all new VM deployments are compliant with our tagging strategy, i.e. that they have to have certain vSphere tags assigned to them on deployment such as "DR", "LineOfBusiness", "Environment", etc.
I am very new to vROps but have managed to create Object List widgets to show which VMs have the "Prod" environment tag and which VMs do not have any environment tag (basically list the VMs which don't have "Prod" AND don't have "Non-Prod" and don't have "DMZ")
However, I can't find a way to list objects with no vSphere tags at all. I've tried a couple of "does not exist" and "empty" filters but nothing shows any data.
Any Help Appreciated
Add a filter criteria that says does not contain the existing tags
I already have a filter to show if a VM doesn't have an environment tag, i.e. if it doesn;t have "Prod" AND it doesn't have "Non-Prod" AND it doesn't have "DMZ" but this is only good for showing up this category and I have multiple vSphere tag categories which I want to report on and hundreds of tags and so listing all of these is not practical.
What I need to do is show all VMs which do not have any vSphere tags at all
Any thoughts on how to do this?
I see this for custom groups, similar should be on that view s well
Almost there! When I tried your "not exists" suggestion below it did not return any results but when I tried "is" and "none" as the value it is now working.
