Chapter 3. Dashboards, Badges, and Widgets

In this chapter, we will start using vRealize Operations to manage our environment. We will start with an orientation of the UI to get familiar with the structure, the dashboards, and how to navigate the environment.

While we discover the dashboards, we will learn about how badges work in vRealize Operations, what drives their behavior, and how they should be used and interpreted.

Finally, we will introduce custom dashboards and describe how they can be built up using the widgets and views that are available.

The major topics that will be covered include:

  • UI and navigation overview
  • Major badges
  • Alerts and Recommendations pane
  • Out of the Box (OOTB) dashboards
  • Custom dashboards and widget interactions
