Wondering how to add the vSphere Tag for a virtual machine to emails sent out for alerts? I recently came across this Reddit post, so decided to try out the Custom Payload feature from vRealize (Aria) Operations and want to share the steps I took to achieve this setting.
Here‘s how to configure a Payload Template and Notification to include the vSphere Tag:
Creating the custom payload template to include the vSphere Tag
To get started, within your vRealize Operations interface (SaaS or on-premises), go to:
- Configure > Alerts
- Click on Payload Templates icon
- Click Add to create a new template
- Give your custom payload template a name,
- a description,
- and set which outbound method it’s tied to. For my example, it will be email.
- Click Next
