VMware vROps

You can install a VMware vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) integration to send events from vROps to Moogsoft AIOps. The integration allows you to send JSON payloads using POST and PUT requests over HTTPS.

See the vROps documentation for details on vROps components.

Before You Begin

The vROps integration has been validated with vROps v. 6.6. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • Your vROps instance can make requests to external endpoints over port 443.
  • You have administrator privileges for a running instance of vROps.
  • You have generated a certificate thumbprint for your Moogsoft AIOps instance.

Configure the vROps Integration

Configure the vROps integration in Moogsoft AIOps as follows:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.
  2. Click VMware vROps in the Monitoring section.
  3. Follow the instructions to create an integration name.

Configure vROps

Log in to vROps to create a new entry for Moogsoft AIOps to vROps webhook endpoint. For more help, see the vROps documentation .

  1. Go to Outbound Settings in vROps administration and add a new outbound instance.
  2. Create a REST notification plugin for Moogsoft AIOps as follows:

    Field
    Value
    Plugin Type Rest Notification Plugin.
    Instance Name The name of your Moogsoft AIOps instance.
    URL

    <your VMware vROps integration URL>

    For example: https://<hostname>/vrops

    User Name Username generated in the Moogsoft AIOps UI.
    Password Password generated in the Moogsoft AIOps UI.
    Content type application/json
    Certificate thumbprint The certificate thumbprint for your Moogsoft AIOps instance.
    Connection count 20

    If you click 'Test' to test the connection, ignore the unsuccessful connection warning. The configuration is correct.

  3. Go to Notification Settings under Alerts and add a rule for your integration alerts as follows:

    Field Value
    Name Name of your rule.
    Method: Plugin-Type Rest Notification Plugin.
    Method: Instance Name of your Moogsoft AIOps instance.
    Criticality Select the severities you want to include in the integration. We recommend that you select all severities.

You can add other filtering criteria if desired. After you complete the configuration Moogsoft AIOps receives alerts from vROps that meet the filtering criteria.
