SCOM2012R2 Powershell Grid Widget - Can I control the trigger? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm currently playing around with the new Widgets in SCOM2012R2 and came across a rather anoying Situation regarding the Powershell Grid Widget.

    In my test Dashboard I have 4 Grids with different Widgets as following:

    1. State Widget - Shows several Groups that contain Computer Objects
    2. Contextual Alert Widget
    3. Details Widget
    4. Powershell Grid Widget - takes the Globalselected Item and Shows all RelatedMonitoring Objects + Details from a subclass of those

    This works perfectly fine, when I select either a Group in the State Widget or a Monitored Object in the PS Grid Widget.

    But as soon as I select an Alert to get more Information about it, the Alert Object is passed to the Powershell Grid Widget and, as the Script is not set up for Alert info, it Shows nothing.

     My question is, if there is a way to Limit the Powershell Grid Widget in a way, that it only reacts to interaction in the State Widget, but not in the Alert Widget?

  • I usually have a routine for that and check if I get data from the monitoring object. If not, I go for alert data.

  • You mean within the Powershell Script? I basically want it to be an Extended Contextual State Widget and only Show the Computer Data. I also thought of filtering the incoming data within the script but then I loose the Computer State Data as soon as I select an Alert..
