You can update the content packs that are already installed from the Content Pack Marketplace without leaving vRealize Log Insight.

About this task

Note:

When alerts from content packs are enabled, the alerts are copied to a user's profile. Users can modify the copy's description or conditions. Beginning with alert definitions instantiated in 4.0, updating a content pack, and by extension its alert definitions, updates or removes the copies to match the improved content pack. If you want to preserve any user modifications, export them as a content pack first and import back into the user profile after the update.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight Web user interface. 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.

Procedure

  1. From the drop-down menu on the upper right, select Content Packs.
