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

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

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

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

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

Important: One instance of vRealize Operations 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, you might override the settings of another user.


  • Verify that you are logged in to the vRealize Log Insight web user interface as a Super Admin user, or a user associated with a role that has the relevant permissions. See Create and Modify Roles for more information. The URL format of the web user interface 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 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 6.5 or later, use the procedure for enabling launch in context in Configuring vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations in the vRealize Operations Configuration Guide.


  1. Expand the main menu and navigate to Integration > vRealize Operations.
  2. Enter the IP address or FQDN of the vRealize Operations primary node or load balancer if one is configured and click Test Connection.
    Note: For Launch in Context functionality, you must provide a vRealize Operations user with administrator privileges.
  3. Click Save.


vRealize Log Insight configures the vRealize Operations instance. This operation might take a few minutes.

Items related to vRealize Log Insight appear in the menus of vRealize Operations.
