As part of integrating vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations Manager, you must specify credentials for vRealize Log Insight to authenticate against vRealize Operations Manager.

vRealize Operations Manager supports both local user accounts and multiple LDAP sources. Both the vRealize Operations Manager and VMware Identity Manager integrations are configured by the vRealize Log Insight admin.

If your deployment uses a VMware Identity Manager integration in vRealize Log Insight, the VMware Identity Manager fallback URL (Redirect URL Host) and the target field on the vRealize Operations Manager integration page should have the exact same value.

Prerequisites

Verify that the integration user account has permissions to manipulate objects in vRealize Operations Manager. See Minimum Required Permissions for a Local or Active Directory User Account.

Procedure

  • To determine the user name for a local user account:
    1. Select Access Control from the vRealize Operations Manager web interface.
    2. Identify or create the integration user. The Source Type field is Local User.
    3. Note the value of the User Name field. You specify this user name when you configure the integration in the vRealize Log Insight administration user interface.
  • To determine the user name format for the LDAP user account that must be provided in vRealize Log Insight, follow these instructions:
    1. Select Access Control from the vRealize Operations Manager web interface.
    2. Identify or create the integration user. Note the User Name and Source Type fields. For example, a user named integration@example.com from the source Active Directory - ad.
    3. Select Authentication Sources.
    4. Identify the authentication source corresponding to the Source Type from Step b. Note the Source Display Name field. For example, "ad".
    5. The user name that entered in the vRealize Log Insight administration user interface is combined from Step 3 and Step 5, in the form UserName@SourceDisplayName. For example, integration@example.com@ad.
