Embed Virtualization Manager widgets in OpenSocial dashboards

The widgets of SolarWinds Virtualization Manager can be displayed in an OpenSocial Gadget. This example uses the Atlassian JIRA project.

  1. Add the gadget to your directory of gadgets.
  2. In JIRA, click Add Gadget at the top of a dashboard.
  3. Click Add Gadget to Directory, and enter the gadget URL.

The SolarWinds Virtualization Manager gadget is ready to be used on your OpenSocial compliant dashboard. In JIRA, click Add it Now to put an empty gadget on your dashboard, and configure the gadget:

  1. Click Edit at the top of the widget.
  2. Configure these fields:
    • SWF URL
      Enter the widget URL retrieved from Virtualization Manager, but remove everything after the ConsoleContainer.swf. For example, http://hyper9.example.com:8983/hyper9/ConsoleContainer.swf.
    • Widget Token
      Enter the unique token for the widget. This is the last section of the widget URL after the = symbol.

  3. Click Save.
