With the Visio 2010 Add-in installed on the client and the data provider installed on the SharePoint server, you can now publish diagrams that you have connected to Operations Manager data to a SharePoint document library to share them with others in your organization.

To publish a diagram to a SharePoint document library

  1. From the File tab on the Visio 2010 ribbon, click Save & Send.

  2. Click Save to SharePoint.

  3. Click Browse for a location to specify where to save the diagram.

  4. Under File Types, choose Web Drawing (*.vdw).

    If you do not choose this option, the drawing will not be visible through a browser, only the client.

  5. Click Save As.

  6. Specify the name and location for the file. To browse to a SharePoint server, type the name of the SharePoint server in the address field and click Go To.

  7. Click Save.

When the diagram is saved to a document library, you can simply browse to the document library in your browser and click the link to the document. The Visio diagram will open in your browser. With the data provider installed, the data will be refreshed directly from the management server.
