Customer would like to be able to show for one or more metrics of a Dashboard View the corresponding sysOIDs - for example having the ability to have it in context menu when right-click into a Dashboard View.

Never mind.   I figured out you have to insert with mysql first before it will show up on the attrs web page.

Web UI

  • you will need an admin level account
  • http://<PC>:<port>/pc/center/admin/debug/attrs
  • find daProxyValidUsers and add users in comma delimited list to the value section.
  • click the update button at the top left of the page to save your changes


Did the location of this parameter change in CAPC 3.5?  I can't find daProxyValidUsers in my attribures list.

The error is back again even though I have this in the DB:





Any thoughts? I even tried to proxy in as Admin and still it does not come up.

This fixed it thanks! The assumption is that these AppViews initial setup is plug and play. Thanks again!

Please follow the instructions in CA PC Apps and User Authorization to authorize the non-admin users.

ugh, the new Github DeviceSupportedMetrics does not work out of the box and there is very little directions on it. When going to this new App view, I just get a spinning circle and then this: Error: [object XMLHttpRequest]


Any thoughts on how to fix this?

This is something we are looking into.

Hello Jason,
this works very well. Only the way for non-root user is somewhat cumbersome ( ). I hope you will create a role right for this. That would simplify it anyway.

Delivered as OpenAPI App available from CA Technologies Performance Management · GitHub

we will definitely look into this, thanks!

FYI we have updated the app to include the VC Attributes and VC Variables. This extends the app view height to 970px. Please give it a try.

Like this app - guess maybe some use cases can be adressed.

However, the OID is still not viewable in GUI (customer need to access Webservice and/or filesystem to view that information).

Have you seen CA PC App GitHub - CA-PM/DeviceSupportedMetrics ? Should be installed in device context page tab, 

Very helpful to identify which metric is supported on this device.

You have only opened 3 years ago ;-)

jep, agree, very good suggestions - but still no feedback from product management ...

An idea would be an additional tap on the device page. There should be listed all OIDs which are queried. Nice would be still the reference to the metric which the user sees when he creates a new view. Example: CPU usage (OID: 1.3.6.x.x.x.x.x.x) is queried and is available in the metrics: "CPU Utilization - Maximun", "CPU Utilization - Verage" and "CPU Total Memory Dedicated CPU - Total". Another approach would be to store the OID (s) in the view (also on the device view).

Yes, same still here for our customer, in large heterogeneous networks this question is raised very often.

This is an important topic when creating dashboards. There is always the question: "What is actually queried? Which OID(s)?". More transparency for the user (not administrator) is necessary here.
