Adding a custom view
As an administrator, create your own custom views in the Views tab. The Views tab provides out-of-the-box page templates that you need to configure to meet your specific requirements. Each template provides access to a specific type of data and presents it in a predefined format. You can create as many custom views as necessary.
A view consists of a set of pages that are based on the templates. You can group pages under a subview, if needed. The pages under a subview are displayed as tabs, also called subsystem tabs.
The following image shows a custom view with a single-page subview VMs and a subview Infrastructure Overview with two subsystem tabs Clusters and Hosts.
The following video (2:50) illustrates the process of adding a custom view.
This video describes the functionality of TrueSight Capacity Optimization, but it is valid for BMC Helix Continuous Optimization too.
