In this HowTo I explain how we can open a SCOM Health Explorer by clicking on a ProView dashboard shape
What we need:
- The web console URL.
- The target ID that we want to show the Health Explorer on.
- Construct the URL.
- Add the URL as visio shape link.
1 The Web Console URL
Open the web console and copy the URL name, see the yellow part
2 The Target ID
To get the Target ID (1) select the correct health state shape you added already to the dashboard. Now open the Shape Data (2)
Now copy the MonitoringObjectID guide
3 Construct the URL
Now we construct the URL that we are going to call when we press on the shape.
We can open, for example, the views below. Replace the ObjectID with the MonitoringObjectID got from the step 2 above and also replace the <web console url> with the correct URL got from step 1.
|StateView single object http://<web console url>/MonitoringView/default.aspx?DisplayMode=Pivot&ViewType=StateView&PmoId=objectId |
AlertView single object http://<web console url>/MonitoringView/default.aspx?DisplayMode=Pivot&ViewType=AlertView&PmoId=objectId
HeathExplorer single object
Diagram view http://<web console url>/MonitoringView/default.aspx?DisplayMode=Pivot&ViewType=DiagramView&PmoID=PmoId
An example for a Health Explorer would be: http://scom2012r2/MonitoringView/ResultViews/ViewTypeHealthExplorer.aspx?targetId=68b6018a-ebec-d945-7f8e-7df8c08ea3fa
We will take the Health Explorer view.
4 Add the URL as visio shape link
Now you select (1) the shape you want to put the Health Explorer on and (2) open the hyperlink option.
Copy and paste (1) the constructed URL from part 3 and press OK (2)
To test you now press the dashboard preview and hover over the shape that you applied with the hyperlink. Click on it when the cursor changes to a hand (1).
