Activate integrations, add, import, or export accounts from the Integrations page in VMware Aria Operations. Integrations are also referenced as Management Packs in VMware Aria Operations.

How Integrations Work

Integrations can include dashboards, reports, alerts, and accounts. Each account contains adapters using which VMware Aria Operations integrates with other products, applications, and monitors their function and health.

Where You Find Integrations

In the menu, click Data Sources > Integrations. By default, the Accounts tab opens. Use this tab to add, import, or export accounts. For more information, see The Accounts Tab.

Click the Repository tab to view the installed and available integrations. For more information, see The Repository Tab.
Note: For more information on pre-activated integrations, see Connecting to Data Sources.

Data Collection Notifications

The Data Collection bell icon on the menu provides quick access to status and critical notifications related to data collections. The icon indicates whether notifications exist, and whether any of them are critical.

The list displays notifications about the data collections that are in progress, and indicates whether any of them have critical issues. The list groups the data collection notifications that are in progress into a single entry at the bottom of the list. To view the details about a collection, expand the notification.

Each notification displays the status of the last or current data collection, the associated adapter instance, and the time since the collection completed or an issue was identified. You can click a notification to open the Integrations page, where you can see further details, and manage adapter instances.

If problems occur with the data collections, VMware Aria Operations identifies those problems during each 5-minute collection cycle.

Failed Integration Installation

If a integration installation fails, plug-ins related to the integration might appear in the Plug-ins page of VMware Aria Operations, even though the integration is not installed and does not appear on the Integrations page. When the integration installation fails, reinstall the integration.
