Great Dashboard, but it was missing the View for VM Memory usage over 80%. I had to manually create that view and then reconfigure the dashboard to use it.

The docs at http://www.vmignite.com/2021/02/vrops-vsphere-health-checker-dashboard-2-0/ say the contents of the downlaoded file should be views.zip and dashboard.zip. But the file linked here contains Dashboard-VMignite HealthChecker.json, views(104).zip and views(105.zip

Yes it is written not to be exact, as I copy and paste that section for my other dashboards. In general you would import the dashboard and the view. It is clearly labeled what is a view and what is a dashboard.

@lannguyen, thanks for creating this dashboard. I have followed your guide on the blog site. Views and Dashboards are imported in my vROps 8.2 environment, but within the Dashboard, all widgets are empty (incorrectly configured?), except vROPS issues. The message within the widgets: "Select the widget source with an interaction or through the self-provider configuration". Did I do something wrong or did I miss a step in the process? When editing the widget the output data is the view which is imported. Hope you can assist.

sorry, cannot delete my post, but found at you need to enable the Self Provider and select an object. In my use case, I selected vCenter Adapter > vSphere World > vSphere World. Now all the info is being displayed at the dashboard.
