I created a custom group (Function) that checks the Properties of a Virtual machine for the Operating System version and populates the group. How can I display this information on my dashboard with the self-provider turned off? As an example, I have a dashboard populated with many supermetrics and would like to include OS counts group(s) using these functions. Generally, I use "metrics" and have no issues. The Guest OS Full Name is an attribute, how can I display that on a scoreboard? Attributes don't seem to work with Supermetrics and or Functions.
Thanks for your help.
You can create a receiving widget that is of type View, and create a view (list type) to show the properties you need. Scoreboards aren't going to meet your needs usually when it comes to showing properties - you need to use a View.
Widgets can be interaction providers or receivers. Some widgets do both, some do one or the other.
Why does the Scoreboard not allow properties to be selected/displayed?
I would like to have a Scoreboard with KPIs for a VM (passed from Object Relationship) and a Scoreboard for settings (Parent Host, VM Tools, OS). It is easier to read than the property list.
Also, is there a property in vROPs that list the datastore(s) that a VM in associated with?
