Yesterday UR2 for System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager was released - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2929891

Included in this update are updated widgets that allow you to create richer dashboard visualizations within Operations Manager. The list of widgets now available are described here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/24133.operations-manager-dashboard-widgets.aspx

To install these make sure you follow the KB update instructions to import the required MPBs

(Import the following management packs:

  1. Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.mpb
  2. Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.Internal.mpb
  3. Microsoft.SystemCenter.TFSWISynchronization.mpb, which has the following dependency:
  1. Microsoft.SystemCenter.AlertAttachment.mpb, which should be installed from the SCOM 2012 R2 RTM media.
  • Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Library.mpb

    Note Management packs are included in the Server component updates in the following path:
%SystemDrive%\Program Files\System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups)
 
The attached document also contains some scenario examples of how to use the Widgets.
 
 
Update 04/25/2014 : For those reporting that the widgets did not appear ensure that the MPB (Microsoft.SystemCenter.Visualization.Component.Library.mpb) imports successfully as we have seen cases where this fails on first import. If it fails please retry.

  • I updated the SCOM environment (UR2) and imported the required management packs. The new widgets and dashboard are not visible. Restarting and clear the console cache did not work.



  • Yeah I don't see the new widgets either

  • I have successfully imported the Virsulization.Component.Library.mpb ( after retry import). But the new widgets did not appear. So I tried another environment same results.


  • The new widgets are working fine now. Reopen the console solved the issue.

  • Imported the necessary MPs and restart the SCOM services and re opened the console. It works :)

  • Thanks great addition to the existing widgets

    One thing though; the contextual health widgets does not seem to work in the web console (the contextual alert widget works).

  • Never mind. The issue seems to manifest using equal 3 cell layout, where the bottom cell does not show content. Other cell layout works :)

  • If you are getting script errors using the Bing search engine, you can use the mobile version which looks cleaner as well:

    $dataObject["BaseUrl"]="http://m.bing.com/search"

  • It's the time of our frantic, messy, frustrating, funny, sometimes awful, lives.

  • When I add an image widget, I can see it in the admin console but it doesn't display in the web console.

    Anyone else able to recreate this issue?

  • The Object Detail Tiles widget is great. But will it be possible to extend it to support group. Currently, if I select one group and select a performance counter. It will show multiple tiles (depends on the number of the membership) showing the same value. If it can query the performance tile for every single member, that will be a fantastic widget !! Where can I submit this as a feedback/suggestion to the product team?
