Re: DASHBOARD: HOW TO ADD A PICTURE WITHIN A VIEW

Hello,

Are you familiar with the Custom Image feature in BSM Service Health/Dashboard?

in 9.x (8.x is similar but instead Service Health, select Dashboard).

This is from the documentation:

  • Assign a custom image to a view 
  • Within Service Health Administration, open View Management > Custom Image. Select a view in the View Selector pane.
  • In the Custom Image pane on the right side, click the Open Image button, and select one of the following:
  • Local. Specify an image saved on your file system.
  • From URL. Specify an image using a URL. Note that any type of image supported by the browser can be loaded from any URL (including HTTP protocol and HTTP authentication), but the URL must be available at all times to display the custom image.
 

Example:

You want to use a picture of your network to display the status of each element in the network:



Example of a picture used for a Custom Map

  • Select a CI from the middle pane, and click the Add CI button.
 

The CI icon is displayed in the left top corner of the diagram with a blue outline. Drag the CI to the required location in the diagram. The CI icon is set at that position.

 
  • From the Display Type dropdown, select one of the following:
  • Status icons. Display standard status icons in the Custom Image component.
  • CI type icons. Display CI type icons which use status colors in the Custom Image component.
  • Add additional CIs as required. When you finish adding CIs, click Save to save the custom image locally, or click Link to URL to save the URL of the image.
 

 

 

Example – Add CIs to Custom Image

You add the appropriate CI to the custom image:

The custom image displayed for the user is as follows:
