Showing a single web part from the webconsole in a browser RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to understand how i can create a website/dashboard view fullscreen without scom (2012R2) or SharePoint 'borders'.
    (I understand 2016 uses HTML5 instead of silverlight by now, so in that version it may be possible or easier to do?)

    An example:


    Look at the final result screenshot. The 'web part' that is typically the 'middle' part of the scom webconsole is 'extracted' and embedded in SharePoint.

    How can I get the URL I want and show it fullscreen without SCOM borders and panes, no SharePoint. Just a plain link directly to that particular webpart. No divs, iframes, etc. Is that possible?

  • I'm not sure you can just use the web console from SCOM to accomplish this. You could create a dashboard in visio, similar to this https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/systemcenterramblings/2014/10/31/scom-creating-a-visio-dashboard-and-publishing-to-sharepoint/. Though, instead of publishing to Sharepoint, you can just save the Visio file as an HTML file. That has worked for me in a demo in the past. 

    Alternatively, the correct route to go here would be to use something like SquaredUp.

  • We're not into using public cloud solutions for the time being.
    That said I find it interesting that OMS still needs something like PowerBI to present data in a manner that should be integral part of OMS to begin with if you ask me.

    Back on topic of the OP, it seems that webparts are proprietary stuff bound to SharePoint and thus add layers of complexity and stacking costs in licensing, maintenance and support.

    So far it seems impossible to create a scom dashboard in visio and the visio add-in. So I can save it as a visio webdrawing and import it either in a SCOM Web Page View or in a Topology widget-ish dashboard.

    And the ultimately display it on a big screen without the SCOM taskbar, navigation bar and taskbar to clutter the view unneccesarily. It's somewhat interesting why this is not natively made available. I'm sure there's lots of demand for it.

  • Same for me- I'm amazed it's not as simple as publishing a dashboard or view to a web-page easily. We have a requirement to incorporate a view of the health of network device as part of a web-based dash produced by other feeds on big screens around the IT offices.... looks like that may not as easy as hoped...  That said there are ways... if you're prepared to do the leg-work- here are some from the Veeam community: https://forums.veeam.com/veeam-management-pack-for-microsoft-system-center-f1/presenting-dashboards-as-web-page-t29408.html
