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.

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

Prerequisites

  • 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.
