The report template contains views and dashboards. Views present collected information for an object. Dashboards give a visual overview of the performance and state of objects in your virtual infrastructure. You can combine different views and dashboards and order them to suit your needs.

In the menu, click Dashboards, and then in the left pane select Reports > Report Templates to access the Report Templates tab.

On the Report Templates tab, you can create, edit, delete, clone, run, schedule, export, and import templates.

The listed templates are user-defined and predefined by vRealize Operations Manager. You can order them by template name, subject, date they were modified, last run, or owner. For each template, you can see the number of generated reports and schedules.

You can filter the templates list by adding a filter from the right side of the panel.

Table 1. Predefined Filter Groups

Filter Group



Filter by the template name. For example, type my template to list all reports that contain the my template phrase in their name.


Filter by another object. If the report contains more than one view applicable for another type of object, you can filter by the other objects.

The maximum number of reports per template is 10. After the tenth report is generated, vRealize Operations Manager deletes the oldest report.
