Is there anyway to display a USM Group like you would a custom dashboard?
you know like...
Yes, in the 7.6 version there is now configuration properties to "lock" a USM portlet to specific group/badge/device views. However this has always been possible in the documented url arguments for running USM in "standalone mode". For example:
See the documentation for full parameters and usage examples: http://docs.nimsoft.com/prodhelp/en_US/UMP/7.6/2301825.html
In pre-7.6 versions of USM, add a "Web Content" portlet, and specify the above url to "lock" the USM view to specific groups/views/devices.
so is there anyway to increase the size of the badge square? as to better fill the screen?
Unfortunately, no the size of the badges is currently hard-coded (as near as I can tell). Have you tried the view=badge1 (largest size) parameter?
What is the use for this page/portlet you are creating? It might be better to format the size of the portlet, and how the portlets are arranged ont he page to better show the Health badges.
it is just a (Systems Admins) group page and it is displayed on a 42 inch wall panel in the office. Has a lot of white space.
I currently use badge1, just not enough to fill the screen.
What if you adjusted the height of the portlet and added more content to fill the space (like a ListReport, PRD view, custom dashboard, or SLA). Here is one that I mocked up for demonstrations with an added critical services report as an example:
That could be something to do.
Do you know if you can change the background color from white to black?
Unfortunately not, the background, size and color of the badges are not configurable in this version. I am hopeful that we will be able to change this in a future version. It wouldn't hurt to put this in an "Idea"/feature request if it doesn't already exist.
I have been working on a similar "badge" view for only alarms that is more customizable, I might look into seeing if this could be adapted for groups...
ah, one other question
That ServiceHealth page of yours, how did you do that? I have HOME | Groups | Systems Admins...(inside of USM) So I can't figure out how to make this it's own page so I can edit just it.
maybe that's the answer, just make another usm and configure that as a new page..
how do you do a page for UMP?
I don't think there is a "&dashboard" parameter... are you thinking of "&geo" for the Geo view dashboards?The list of parameters to customise the views and filter to groups etc is documented here:http://docs.nimsoft.com/prodhelp/en_US/UMP/7.6/2040992.html#o2303158
I'll dink around with that. For now I can add the content pages but, I still cannot get multiple portlets to come up with that url scheme...
Ah, sorry I neglected to mention that (in pre-7.6 USM) you need to add a Web Content portlet, and use the URL parameters that we discussed:
And then adjust the height etc. Sorry does that make it clear(er) how to create the "Service View" that I posted?
