The Projects tab is where you create projects, access existing projects, and view the project visualization chart. This page contains the visualization pane and a tabular list of projects.

You can create projects and add scenarios for vCenter Server instances, clusters, hosts, virtual machines, and datastores on the Projects tab.

When you use the projects list to add to or remove projects from the visualization pane, you can see the cumulative effect of those projects on the chosen object in the object context. You can click other objects in the object context to see how those projects might affect them . You can choose to commit one or more projects, or perform other actions on them. For example, you can delete, edit, and change the status of a project.

Description

Visualization Pane

The list of projects is filtered by the object that you select from the inventory. All projects that are listed are directly associated with the inventory object. Use the projects list toolbar to create a new project or act on a project, such as edit or delete an existing project. From the list of projects, you can click a column heading to sort each of the columns in the table or filter the list. You can click an icon for each project row in the table to add that project to the visualization pane. You can also drag a project to view its effect in the visualization chart.

In both views, vRealize Operations Manager assigns names to each project, such as 1a and 2a projects in the visualization chart. The tool tip for a project is displayed in the chart and shows the project's name and description.
