You can configure vRealize Log Insight to send alert notifications to vRealize Operations Manager.

You can integrate vRealize Log Insight with vRealize Operations Manager vApp and vRealize Operations Manager Installable.

For information about configuring vRealize Operations Manager Installable to integrate with vRealize Log Insight, see the Log Insight Getting Started Guide.

Integrating vRealize Log Insight alerts with vRealize Operations Manager allows you to view all information about your environment in a single user interface.

You can send notification events from multiple vRealize Log Insight instances to a single vRealize Operations Manager instance. You can enable launch in context for a single vRealize Log Insight instance per vRealize Operations Manager instance.

Verify that the version of vRealize Operations Manager supports alert notifications from vRealize Log Insight. For more information about supported product versions, see Product Compatibility.

Note

vRealize Log Insight does not check the version of the target vRealize Operations Manager and lets you proceed with the configuration of the notifications. However, the notification events might not appear as expected in the vRealize Operations Manager user interface.
