With the introduction of Operations Manager 6.0, the ability to create custom reports for any object type with a simple UI is now available. Out-of-the-box, with Version 6.0, there are over 50 report templates to leverage straight away or use as examples for your own reports.
The creation of reports is very simple, as views are used as the delivery container for content in the reports. This includes the text and image presentation types, which can be used to add context and detail to manual or scheduled reports.
Like views, report templates can be imported and exported from other vROps systems allowing administrators to share system configuration across environments.
As the majority of the configuration for setting up reports is creating relevant views, the reporting functionality can simply be seen as a delivery engine for multiple views as well as custom content.
