You can configure vRealize Log Insight to send alert notifications to vRealize Operations Manager.

About this task

You can integrate vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations Manager vApp and vRealize Operations Manager Installable. Integrating with the Installable version requires additional changes to the vRealize Operations Manager configuration. For information about configuring vRealize Operations Manager Installable to integrate with vRealize Log Insight, see the Log Insight Getting Started Guide.

Integrating vRealize Log Insight alerts with vRealize Operations Manager allows you to view all information about your environment in a single user interface.

You can send notification events from multiple vRealize Log Insight instances to a single vRealize Operations Manager instance. You can enable launch in context for a single vRealize Log Insight instance per vRealize Operations Manager instance.

Beginning with vRealize Operations Manager 6.0, vRealize Log Insight uses the vRealize Operations Manager 6.0 REST API to create resources and relationships in vRealize Operations Manager for configuring the launch in context adapter.

If using vRealize Operations Manager 5.8.5, the HTTP POST adapter is used to create the launch in context adapter. vRealize Operations Manager 5.8.0 and earlier are not supported for vRealize Log Insight integration.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that the version of vRealize Operations Manager supports alert notifications from vRealize Log Insight. For more information about supported product versions, see Product Compatibility.

    Note:

    vRealize Log Insight does not check the version of the target vRealize Operations Manager and lets you proceed with the configuration of the notifications. However, the notification events might not appear as expected in the vRealize Operations Manager user interface.

  • Create an integration user account in vRealize Operations Manager with required permissions. For more information, see Requirements for Integrating With vRealize Operations Manager.

  • Verify that you know the IP address or host name of the target vRealize Operations Manager instance.

  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight Web user interface as a user with the Edit Admin permission. The URL format is https://log-insight-host, where log-insight-host is the IP address or host name of the vRealize Log Insight virtual appliance.

Note:

In an environment running a vRealize Operations Manager (version 6.1 or later) cluster with a configured load balancer, you can use the load balancer IP address if one is available.

Procedure

  1. Click the configuration drop-down menu icon and select Administration.
  2. Under Integration, select vRealize Operations Manager.
  3. Type the IP address or host name of the master node or the load balancer if one is configured. Use a vRealize Operations Manager user credentials and click Test Connection. vRealize Log Insight uses the credentials to push notification events to vRealize Operations Manager. Make sure the configured user has the minimum permissions required for the integration to work. See Minimum Required Permissions for a Local or Active Directory User Account.
  4. In the vRealize Operations Manager pane, select Enable alerts integration.
  5. Click Save.

What to do next

  • For vRealize Operations Manager 6.x and later, see to relevant pages in the vRealize Operations Manager UI to view the notification events that vRealize Log Insight sends.

  • For vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.5, notification events that vRealize Log Insight sends are not visible by default in the vRealize Operations Manager vSphere UI. Go to Planning > Events and click Show notification events.

  • You can configure alert queries to send notification events to vRealize Operations Manager. See Add an Alert Query in Log Insight to Send Notification Events to vRealize Operations Manager.
