vRealize Operations Manager Licensing

You must associate View objects with your vRealize Operations for Horizon license key by editing license groups in vRealize Operations Manager. A license group is a way to gather certain objects, called license group members, under a particular license key. By default, the vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Operations for Horizon license groups both include all host, virtual machine, and datastore objects. Because these objects are members of both license groups, they are covered by both your vRealize Operations Manager license and your vRealize Operations for Horizon license. Each license group includes membership criteria that you can use to filter the objects that are members of the license group. By editing the membership criteria for the vRealize Operations Manager and vRealize Operations for Horizon license groups, you can specify that certain objects are covered only under your vRealize Operations for Horizon license key.

Prerequisites:

Add your vRealize Operations for Horizon and vRealize Operations Manager license key(s).
