Extra field for Column Chooser: Is Virtual Machine

  • Create an Issue

Hi,

In the field in the sessions 'Is Virtual Machine', we have listed our VMWare servers.

It would be great if we could have this field in the Column Chooser.

Now we duplicate the value in Is Virtual Machine to Custom Field 1, which works, but we have to enter the information twice.


Kind regards,
Ray

Hello Raymond,

Unfortunately we haven't yet included this but we'll work on adding the "Is virtual machine" checkbox value to the column chooser for the next beta version. Look forward to it! smile

Hi there-
Any updates on this? To clarify, I dont believe the OP was looking to add the check box to the field chooser, but rather the value in the Server field when using this option. As the OP does, we also store the VMware machine name in the Server field and it would very helpful to view this as a column (we're also currently using a custom field as well to get around this issue).

Thanks!

@Timothy

What version of RDM are you running?

In RDM 12.0.8.0, you can add the Is virtual machine column in the Navigation pane. Right click on the name column and select column chooser to add the column.

I'm on 12.0.11.0, and I don't have the Is Virtual Machine in column chooser. Also, the column I would like to see is listed as Server under the Is Virtual Machine heading.

So, in this image, I would like to see the VM001 in the list.

@Raymond,

What do you have in column chooser? Strange that you don't see Is virtual machine. Here's what you should see

Could you post a print screen of yours. Please note that you need to do a right-click on the Name column in the Navigation Pane and select Column Chooser.

Best regards,

@Raymond,

Is it possible that you are doing your right-click -> Name -> Column Chooser in the Dashboard instead of the Navigation Pane?

I see what you mean now. I have an option for Is Virtual Machine in the Navigation Pane.

I'm looking for the Server (under Is Virtual Machine) in the content pane, when I click on a folder in the navigation pane!

Hello,

I had a chat with our engineering department and this column will be added to the Dashboard as well.

This is exactly what we're looking for as well.
