The View widget provides the vRealize Operations Manager view functionality into your dashboard.

How the View Widget and Configuration Options Work

A view presents collected information for an object in a certain way depending on the view type. Each type of view helps you to interpret properties, metrics, alerts, policies, and data from a different perspective.

You can add the View widget to one or more custom dashboards and configure it to display data that is important to the dashboard users.

Where You Find the View Widget and Configuration Options

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the left pane, click Home to see your configured dashboards.

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, click Content > Dashboards. On the Dashboards toolbar, click the Add icon to add a dashboard or the Edit icon to edit the selected dashboard. In the Dashboard workspace, on the left, click Widget List, and drag a widget to the right pane of the dashboard. On the title bar of the selected widget, click the Edit icon to access the configuration options.

The View widget toolbar depends on the displayed view type. You can export the view as a CSV file for any view type.
