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 v6.6. 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 access to vROps.

  • You have generated a certificate thumbprint for your Moogsoft AIOps instance.

Configure the vROps Integration

To configure the vROps integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click VMware vROps in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Set a Basic Authentication username and password.

Configure vROps

Log in to vROps to create a 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

    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

    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.
