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

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.

The widget might be included on any of your custom dashboards. In the menu, click Dashboards to see your configured dashboards.

To customize the data that appears in the dashboard widget, in the menu, click Dashboards. Click Actions > Create Dashboard/Edit Dashboard to add or edit a 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 Widget 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.

To configure a widget, click the Edit Widget icon on the widget title bar.
