    Hi,
    I created my custom FlexView, now I would like to apply this flexview to a specific device,
    so I can see the information about these flex on the Device View of the OneView.
    How I can set up this binding?

    Thanks
    Roberto

    Hello Roberto. I was able to add in a custom flexview by taking what I have previously made and dropping it into the NetSight\appdata\System\FlexViews\My FlexViews folder on my server.
    Then I stopped and started the server again and it shows up.

    Hi Roberto, are you asking about how viewed my Flexview as you see it, or about my custom fleview itself? Can you clarify? I think your asking about the flexview itself.

    I need to create a FlexView for a specific device type (1 flex view for Motorola NX Wireless Controller and 1 flex view for MOXA Industrial Switches) and let to view the info of the respective flexview when I click on the Device View of the OneView.
    I have tried but something goes wrong.

    So If you have a guide step by steb or how-to is the best, or if you provide me your example I can try to catch where I'm wrong ...

    Thanks
    Roberto

    The most comprehensive guidance for creation and modification of Flexviews is in the help guide. It makes the assumption your using it from Netsight Console, but if made there and ported over for use in Oneview, no problem.
    1. So from the http://[i]:8080
    2. select help in right hand corner then hit 'search all topics' in lower left of help window
    3. Type in flexview
    4. Select How to Create and Modify Flexviews

    If you get stuck there - Please open a case with the GTAC.

    I have followed step by step the guide, as suggested, and now I'm in the following conditions,
    On the consolle I can see the result of my FlexView ...



    But on the One-View for the same device and the same Flex View the result was different ..



    I don't understand what's wrong ...

    I am experiencing a similar issue. My custom flex few columns display but the data fields do not populate.



    Does OneView require the mibs to be in a different folder than Console does?

    This may take some modification of MyDeviceFamilyMenu.xml file to work properly with third party gear.
    I would open a ticket with the GTAC and we can look if there is a way to solve this problem.

    Hi.

    I just found this conversation. If you want to bind FlexView with DeviceView, you can get inspiration here: https://github.com/extremenetworks/Netsight-Report-Views/blob/master/DeviceView/README.md

    You can have more FlexViews in the same DeviceView also...

    Matthias, I sent it to you via email as a zip file. In the past, these .tpl files even zipped are not liked by email filters. So hopefully it gets there for you. Some of the MIBs are likely not valuable across several platforms FYI. So it stands as it is. Of course you can add or subtract information as you see fit as well and make your own. I have used in the past for preliminary network health checks (at L1-L2 layer of course).

    Assuming you are using 3rd party mibs that you had to import I believe I solved this last night. I have a case open with tech and am waiting to hear their response but my custom flexview is now working in OneView.



    I knew that refreshing the Flexview in OneView was not generating traps by doing a tcpdump on the NetSight server which is OneView operates from. It is important to note that this behavior is different than that of Console which runs from and uses the mib file stored on your pc.



    Apparently the problem is the OneView is not looking in the MyMib folder and is therefore unaware that it has access to the mibs the custom flexview is referencing. To make it work I placed the mib file in the base mib folder and now all is well. I am attaching screen shots of both file paths for clarity.

    This is where I understood mibs should be imported too so that they don't get overwritten by future updates. This folder also seems to sync with the folder on your pc that Console looks in.



    This is where I had to put the mib to make my Flexview work in OneView

    After copy the 3rd.mib to upper mibs folder, and restart the NetSight service, it works!

    Thanks~

    Hi ZdeneK,
    when I use your fantastic flexview learned mac addresses with ALIAS and I tray to create a group in the left of the screen Extreme show me the string like in the left but would be great if the system showed me the alias of the pc (orange arrow in the right side)

    So...
    could you replace the string on the left side with the description of pc show in the right side (ifAlias) ?

    Hi,

    the flexview is only the content of the right hand side of the screen. Flexview can be modified. The left hand side with device tree is not something you can modify.

    These strange numbers are instance numbers the switch reports for the MAC address table.

    Sorry. can not help with this request.
