You can configure vRealize Operations Manager to display menu items related to vRealize Log Insight and launch vRealize Log Insight with an object-specific query.

About this task

You can integrate vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations Manager vApp and vRealize Operations Manager Installable.

Integrating with vApp install and Installable (Windows, Linux) requires additional changes to the vRealize Operations Manager configuration. See the topic about installing the vRealize Log Insight Management Pack (Adapter) in vRealize Operations Manager 6.x and later in the vRealize Log Insight 4.0 information center.

Note that the vRealize vRealize Log Insight Management Pack is pre-installed in vRealize Operations Manager 6.0 and later and does not require configuration changes.

vRealize Operations Manager Installable (Windows version) is discontinued from vRealize Operations Manager 6.5 and later.

Important:

One instance of vRealize Operations Manager supports launch in context for only one instance of vRealize Log Insight. Because vRealize Log Insight does not check whether other instances are already registered with vRealize Operations Manager, you might override the settings of another user.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insightportnumber 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.

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

  • Verify that you have the required user credentials. See Minimum Required Permissions for a Local or Active Directory User Account.

  • If you are using vRealize Operations Manager 6.5 or later, use the procedure for enabling launch in context in the vRealize Operations Manager 6.5 information center.

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 FQDN of the vRealize Operations Manager master node or load balancer if one is configured and click Test Connection.
    Note:

    For Launch in Context functionality, you must provide a vRealize Operations Manager user with administrator privileges.

  4. Click Save.
