    vSphere tags as columns in Operations custom report

      I need to create a custom report in vRealize Operations that shows certain vSphere Tags as columns.

       

      For example, among other vSphere Tags, there is one category called "Owner" and the tag is the name of a person in the company. I want to create a report with a column "Owner" and the value must be the name of the person.

       

      Is this possible?

      Thanks.

          Yes and No

           

          The yes

           

          Create a list view with Virtual Machine as the subject and the under data select properties and select vsphere tags. Not sure if you have more than one tag if it will show you all or just one you select. I dont use tags because of the No bit below

           

          The No

           

          The format is not great ( at least in 6.6 or below) it has the tag catagory and the value noy just the value. This is why i love creating custom properties in vrops and dont use tags

            I have something similar to this. Im using the "VRM Owner" tag from vCenter as an "Owner Tag" in vROPS.

             

             

             

            My "Owner Tag" is actually the "vSphere Tag" property in the metric picker.

             

             

            If I wanted to put this same information into a report, I would create a view that includes the "vSphere Tag" property
