Cloud Libraries

OmniCenter offers the option to download various types of new modules from the Netreo cloud libraries.

In order to download/upload modules from/to the Netreo cloud libraries using the Internet, cloud services must be turned on in OmniCenter from the OmniCenter Cloud Services Dashboard (Administrator → System → Cloud Services). If you OmniCenter is not connected to the Internet, cloud library modules can still be installed manually on the Cloud Library Installation page using a text blob supplied by a Netreo support engineer. (To open the Cloud Library Installation page, navigate to the Cloud Services Dashboard and click the Cloud Library Installation button.)

Modules are available from the following libraries:

  • Device Type/Subtype Cloud Library
  • Service Check Cloud Library
  • Device Template Cloud Library
  • Action Group Cloud Library
  • Alert Template Cloud Library
  • Incident Management Rules Cloud Library (OmniCenter Overview only)
  • User Cloud Library (OmniCenter Overview only)

When viewing the list of modules in a cloud library, click the cloud download button to download and install the module. A yellow icon means that a version of that module is currently installed in your OmniCenter and will be overwritten. This process cannot be undone.

Modules can be uploaded from your local OmniCenter library to the Netreo cloud library by clicking the upload button next to a module’s name in its respective library list. All modules uploaded to the Netreo cloud libraries are subject to a manual approval process before they will become available for download. Once approved, modules becomes available for download to all Netreo OmniCenter customers.

Modules uploaded to an OmniCenter Overview cloud library are only available for download by that Overview’s client OmniCenters. However, since these libraries are completely controlled by the customer administrating the Overview, modules can be made available for download immediately.
