With TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10.7 release, the TrueSight console, which is hosted on the TrueSight Presentation Server, is the primary user interface for capacity views. You can access most of the out-of-the-box capacity views from this console. By using the simplified workflow and new, easy-to-configure view page templates, you can add custom views from this console.

With the Feature Pack 1 (10.7.01) for the TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10.7 release, the TrueSight console has six additional, out-of-the-box view page templates to enable you to define custom views in the TrueSight console.

What has changed?

Out-of-the-box views

The following out-of-the-box capacity views are available in the TrueSight console:

The Capacity Pools view was migrated to the TrueSight console in the 10.5.00 release.

The migrated views can be accessed directly in the TrueSight console. If you access any of these views in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console, you are automatically redirected to the corresponding view in the TrueSight console.

Custom views

10.7 release

You can create custom views in the TrueSight console by using the simplified workflow and the new, easy-to-configure view page templates. Creation of new custom portlet via Capacity Optimization Integration Studio is deprecated. 

10.7.01 release

Six additional, easy-to-configure view page templates are available in the TrueSight console. For more information about all the templates, see View page templates. To know the list of newly added templates, see the Enhancements section in 10.7.01: Feature Pack 1.

Note

In 10.7.01, support for adding custom views in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console is deprecated. Custom views that were created in the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console will continue to be available in that console.

BMC recommends that you re-create all these views in the TrueSight console after the upgrade to 10.7.01. For more information, see Re-creating a custom view.

Accessing views in the TrueSight console 

Access to the TrueSight console is enabled through integrated system authentication with Atrium Single Sign-On. Following an upgrade to TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10.7.00 or 10.7.01, you must complete the following tasks to access capacity views from the TrueSight console:
