As a platform operator, you can enable Tanzu Observability by Wavefront for your organization, which allows you to connect your managed clusters to your Wavefront account to collect and analyze cluster metrics.


This procedure assumes that you have a managed cluster, either attached or provisioned, and that you have set up a Wavefront account.

Note: Although you don't specify your Wavefront account until you add clusters, you should have the account set up and ready before enabling this functionality at the organizational level.

For more information about Tanzu Observability by Wavefront, see Observation and Analysis of Cluster Health and Resources in VMware Tanzu Mission Control Concepts.

Log in to the Tanzu Mission Control console.

Make sure you have the appropriate permissions.
  • To enable observability for your organization, you must be associated with the organization.admin role.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Administration.
  2. On the Administration page, click the Integrations tab.
  3. In the Tanzu Observability by Wavefront box, click Enable.
  4. In the confirmation dialog, click Confirm.


When you click Confirm, the Tanzu Observability by Wavefront integration is enabled for your organization, and you can start adding clusters to collect data for analysis through your Wavefront account.

What to do next

After you have enabled observability for your organization, you can Create a Tanzu Observability Credential Object and then Add a Cluster to Observability.
