Objects in an enterprise environment are related to other objects in that environment. Objects are either part of a larger object, or they contain smaller component objects, or both.

How Object Relationships Works

When you select a parent object, vRealize Operations Cloud shows any related child objects. You can delete a child object or add more child objects from the list of objects in your environment.

Where You Find Object Relationships

At the Home page, select Administration. Then select Configuration > Object Relationships in the left pane.

Object Relationships Workspace Options

  • Two columns in the center pane display the existing parent-child relationships. You use the object tag options above the left column to select a parent object.
  • Two columns in the right pane list objects in your environment. You use the object tag options above the right column to select the object to add as a child.
