The Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic uses the vRealize Hyperic REST API to import vRealize Hyperic platforms, servers, and services to vRealize Operations Manager.

The vRealize Hyperic REST API returns the entire vRealize Hyperic inventory, including all parent-child relationships. During the discovery process, the Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic uses the API to determine child objects for the resources that it imports to vRealize Operations Manager.

When autodiscovery is enabled, the Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic imports all vRealize Hyperic platforms, servers, and services to vRealize Operations Manager. You can optionally configure a white or black list to selectively import objects from vRealize Hyperic during autodiscovery. The Management Pack for vRealize Hyperic imports only those objects that pass the filtering criteria that you specify in the white and black lists.
