As far as I know, you can't use a variable string ($) in a like statement, but I never tried using that before, usually its a simple string and commonly i use a pattern in a node's caption or their custom properties, like "Nodes. Caption LIKE" or "Nodes.ClusterGrp". You can also go to Manage Views and specify a view limitation specifying the allowed devices for that group. The Account Limitation Builder can help you with this also.
Hope this helps. =)
Thanks for the suggestions.
I tried using the View Limitation but the problem here is that I can only limit the page to a specific group (or possibly group pattern, but I run into the same problem either way). We I do so and then try to open the Group Details page for any other group then the one I allowed in the View Limitation, it gives me an error:
Account Limitation Error
You do not have permission to view Net Object "C:11".
Also, even in the group that is allowed to show in that page, the Top XX object still shows the Top XX from ALL nodes, not just the group member nodes.
I looked at the Account Limitation Builder and it appears it has the same limitations.
So the question still remains: is there any way to create a custom view in a Group Details page that shows details for ONLY the group member nodes (Top XX for the group nodes only)? I would love to be able to provide my customer's a Top XX view of only the nodes in their customer group or provide our NOC a way to easily drill down to a customer group and see this same info.
It seems to me that the logic to do this is already built into Orion. For example, when I look at the Group Details page for any group, it shows me the Last 25 Events for only the group members, Active Alerts for only the group members, etc. This logic just doesn't seem to be available for any other web Resource I try to add to the Group Details page.
Wow, this is an old post! But I have recently been trying the same things, specifically with Syslog messages.
The view I have created shows all Syslog messages for the user limitation, and I have tried everything I can think of to limit the page down to those messages that relate to the groups, adding new page limitations and attempting to use the $ variables for names to this doesn't work, nor does the variable on the page resource (as well as attempting to restrict the resource with SQL queries).
I am not far off either suggesting to create individual group views for those that I need, but that seems excessive, seeing as these are meant to form part of a nested map structure.
Has anyone been able to get this to work?
