Introduction

This plug-in installs extensions that will collect metrics for the Envision product. Requires the Network Director or Policy Manager Services features.

  • This plug-in is required if you are using separate containers for Policy Manager and Network Director.
  • The plug-in is installed to the Policy Manager container as part of the Envision Policy Manager Console Extension Feature and must be installed separately to the Network Director container.
  • If you have the Network Director feature installed on the Policy Manager container, installation of this feature is not required as the plug-in is already installed as part of the Envision Policy Manager Console Extension Feature.
  • Having the plug-in installed on both Policy Manager and Network Director containers enables the ability to extract data from various payloads using the Business Metrics Policy.
