We have CommVault Complete licensing and also Metallic Cloud Storage Service (MCSS) licensing. However, the Command Center dashboard lacks a widget for Metallic. Can someone share how to add a widget that would display the %used of a library? This would effectively show MCSS as a % of licensed use. The existing Current Capacity widget only shows the % of licensed Complete usage, not the % of storage used; the MCSS library falls into the latter category since MCSS is not a “Complete” accounting of backup potential, it is an actual % of backup used.

 

From dashboard:

From Storage>Cloud

So it would be nice to see the cloud library as a pie chart, similar to the complete licensing in the Current Capacity widget.

 

How do you make widgets and put them on the dashboard?

That’s a very good question….let me talk to some folks internally to see what options exist for custom widgets.  We may need a CMR, but I’ll exhaust other avenues first.

I’ll be in touch!

Are you not seeing this under the storage tile of dashboard ?

@Mike Struening thanks for looking into it, I hope you have some success, and let me know

@Prasad Nara  the Storage widget on the dashboard only reports on-premises disk libraries, not cloud libraries. I can open the Storage admin page (provided in screenshot when I opened this post) and see the MCSS library. However, the question is, how do I add a widget to the main dashboard page.

At the moment we don’t have support to add new widget.

From 11.23 and higher we show the MCSS and other cloud libraries in the storage widget.

Thanks for that update @Prasad Nara!

I’m running 11.22 so that would explain why I don’t see the cloud library in the storage widget. We are due to update to 11.2x in the spring, so can look forward to that minor improvement tweak of the dashboard.
