Adding New Infrastructure Views

 

You can create more defined groups under infrastructure views by adding more custom views. For instance, you might want to group all your Environment Sensors or IP Phones into separate infrastructure views. You can add a new infrastructure view from Maps tab or Custom dashboards.


Adding New Infrastructure View from Maps tab

Here are the steps to add a new infrastructure view from Maps tab:

  1. From the pop-up in the Maps tab,  click Add Infrastructure View option .
  2. Specify the category Name and click Add.
  3. From the listed devices, select and move the required devices to this view.
  4. Click Import Now option.

The selected devices are displayed in the newly created infrastructure views.


Adding New Infrastructure View from Custom Dashboard

OpManager allows you to add a new infrastructure view from the dashboards also, provided if the infrastructure view widget is selected to get displayed in the dashboard. To add a new infrastructure view from the infrastructure widget, follow the steps given below:

  1. Click New Infrastructure View link available at the bottom of the Infrastructure snapshot widget. Add category window opens.
  2. Enter the Category Name.
  3. Select the category whose properties needs to be inherited for this category.
  4. Click Add button. Import window opens.
  5. From the listed devices, select and move the required devices to this view.
  6. Click Import Now button to start importing the selected into this category.


After you create new infrastructure views, you can create device templates for devices of this category. This allows you to define monitors specific to the category and automatically applies the configurations defined in the template to the devices as soon as they are discovered.
