Most of you have seen the out-of-the-box dashboards we provided in OpsMgr 2012. We now want to share with you our extensibility story for dashboards and show you how you can build custom dashboards within minutes. Eugene our UI Dev Lead and I (UI Program Manager) will present this brand new session(IM-B401 Utilizing and Developing Dashboards in Operations Manager 2012 SP1) at MMS 2013. This will be the first event we will be sharing this content and hope you can join us on Tuesday April 9th at 4:30PM in room SouthSeas F at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas.

What we will cover at the session?

1. DEMO building a workload dashboard in 5mintues using the OpsMgr Console and making it portable to any management group in your environment.

2. DEMO building a rich completely custom dashboard for SQL Server(as the example). In this demo we will show you how to...

    1. Build a custom Data Provider using Windows PowerShell
    2. Bind the PowerShell Data Provider to a custom UI Control(i.e. show you how to pull in any data and visualize it in a widget)
    3. Enabling multi-select Auxiliary Navigation (i.e. selecting one or more objects and being able to see a drilldown dashboard for those specific objects)

d. Enabling multi-selection of any object and being able to visualize the data in a chart control

3. Finally we will share our Top 5 console performance tuning tips and best practices.


Join us on April 9th @ 4:30PM (Session Code IM-B401)

We will share the sample here after the session.

Attached are the sample dashboards shown in section 2 above.

  • Hey, I am going to miss your session here at MMS because of another I must attend. The content and slides look very much like something we can use. How to I implement the Sample Dashboards? Is there a dashboard builder tool?

  • I get this error attempting to import the MP.  The resource is present and marked embedded. MP has been rebuilt

    An exception was thrown while processing TryImportManagementPackWithResources for session ID uuid:ebb705a1-be13-4ea9-98ad-6b513bad1c44;id=215.

    Exception message: Cannot find resource with ID DatabaseInitialScript.

    Full Exception: : Cannot find resource with ID DatabaseInitialScript.


  • @ Charlie B_ you can use the samples attached to this blog post. You will need to install the OpsMgr 2012 Visual Studio 2010 Plugin which you can download from here:

    @Robin you need to import the project into Visual Studio 2010 and also install this plugin

    Are you trying this in Visual Studio 2012?

  • Mea Culpa - doggedly trying to install mp instead of mpb. (old habits die hard!)
