Content packs contain dashboards, extracted fields, saved queries, and alerts that are related to a specific product or set of logs.

To view the content packs that are loaded on your system, navigate to the Content Packs page in the VMware Aria Operations for Logs user interface.

To view the contents of a content pack, click the content pack in the list on the left.

Content Packs

The Content Packs category contains imported sets of dashboards, extracted fields, queries, and alerts. The General and VMware - vSphere content packs are imported by default.

Note: Content pack dashboards are read-only. You cannot delete or rename them. However, if you are an administrator, a dashboard user, or a user with view access to the Dashboards > Content Pack Dashboards permission, you can clone content pack dashboards to your custom dashboard. You can clone whole dashboards or individual widgets.

Custom Content

The Custom Content category contains dashboards, extracted fields, and queries created in the current instance of VMware Aria Operations for Logs. The My Content section contains the custom content of the user that is logged in. The Shared Content section contains content that is shared among all users of VMware Aria Operations for Logs.

  • You can share and manage content if you are a Super Admin user, or a user with edit or full access to content packs.
  • You cannot uninstall content from the Custom Content section. If you want to remove saved information from the Custom Content section, you have to delete individual elements, such as dashboards, queries, alerts, and fields.
