How to Add Widgets to a Dashboard

In the workspace, on the left, you see a list with all the predefined vRealize Operations Manager widgets. To add a widget to the dashboard, drag the widget to the content area on the right.

To locate a widget, you can type the name or part of the name of a widget in the Filter option. For example, when you enter cap, the list is filtered to display the Capacity Remaining, Capacity Utilisation, and Reclaimable Capacity widgets. You can then select the widget you require.

Most widgets must be configured individually to display information. For more information about how to configure each widget, see Widgets.

How to Arrange Widgets in a Dashboard

You can modify your dashboard layout to suit your needs. By default, the first widgets that you add are automatically arranged horizontally wherever you place them. The widgets move up to the highest position in the dashboard based on their width.

  • To position a widget, drag the widget to the desired location in the layout. Other widgets automatically rearrange to make room.

  • To resize a widget, drag the bottom right corner of the widget.
