They aren't going to be accessible because vROps doesn't collect them.

Using vcenter 6.5 and vrops 7.5, I see them under vm all metrics, all properties, summary, custom tags.

I noticed this also when I created my first custom view, but then these data properties disappeared when making my second one. I was able to clone the original view which had the previously used properties, but as this was a small subset of what custom attributes we use this is very limiting.

What I've tried:

  • Create a new View
    • Selected List Presentation
    • Selected Virtual Machine Subject
    • Selected Virtual Machine Data
      • Selected Properties dropdown
      • Selected "Custom" Filter - "No metrics to select."
      • Navigated dropdown, couldn't find Summary > Custom Tag > Tag
  • Cloned View with "Summary|Custom Tag:TAGNAME"
    • Editing the View still shows the "Summary|Tag:TAGNAME" Data Property
    • Navigating dropdown doesn't show any Summary > Custom Tag > Tag

What I'm using:

  • vCenter 6.7
  • vRealize Operations Manager 7.5

A followup to my previous reply:

I logged in as the local Admin account and was able to see these properties. I logged in as a vCenter Global Administrator and could not see the properties.. Not sure why that matters?

The local admin in vrops has access to everything in vrops

the vCenter Global Administrator has access to every thing in vcenter.

This does not mean that vCenter Global Administrator has access to everything in vrops it all depends on the level of access the vCenter Global Administrator has in vrops.

vCenter Global Administrator looks like it does not have the permissions to see vcenter custom attributes in vrops
