How to Personalize a View in Essentials

Applies To: System Center Essentials 2010

In System Center Essentials 2010, views, like other monitoring objects, are contained in management packs. If a view is contained in a sealed management pack, you can open the properties of the view, but you cannot save any changes to it. Instead, you can change the display options of the view and then save the view as a personalized view.

For more information about views, see Views in Essentials.

To personalize a state view

  1. In the Essentials console, click Monitoring.

  2. In the Monitoring pane, right-click the view that you want to personalize, and then click Personalize view. The Personalize view dialog box displays the default settings of the view.

  3. In Columns to display, select the property that you want to display in your view. You can also click to clear any selections set by the original view. In the Sort columns by box, click the drop-down arrow to choose a property by which you want to sort the monitored objects in your view, and then click OK.


    In a State view, the option to sort by groups is not available. This option is available in other views, such as the Alert view and Event view.
