Installing SCOM 2012 Visio Dashboards in SharePoint 2013

In a previous post I showed how to install the SCOM 2012 Visio Dashboards on SharePoint 2010.

To install the Visio Dashboards on SharePoint 2013 it’s a little more tricky.

Part 1 – Installing SharePoint 2013 Integration Components

First I install the Operations Manager 2012 R2 console on my SharePoint Server



Next I verify that the SharePoint 2013 Enterprise with Visio Services are enabled.

On my SharePoint server I go to the SharePoint Central Administration Page.


I click Configuration Wizards


I click Launch Farm Configuration Wizard

I scroll down and verify that the Visio Graphics Service is Enabled.




It appears to be already enabled so I click Cancel.

I verify that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Features are enabled.


Ok now I am ready.

First I need to install the Visio Services Data Provider.

I log on to my SharePoint server as the Farm Administrator so I have all the permissions I need.

Now I copy the Server folder over to my SharePoint 2013 server in the C:\temp\ directory from the Extensions I downloaded earlier.


Then I run setup.exe.  Click Next, Next, Close.

On my SharePoint server, I open the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as an Administrator


In the Command shell I change directories to


C:\Program Files\Visio Services Data Provider for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager



Now I type in



I get an error because I am running SharePoint 2013.  I don’t worry about it as I will fix it later.

I run



I see that it says that opsmgrdatamodule.wsp is Deployed so I am good.

I also see that another one listed called microsoft.enterprisemanagem…  This is from when I installed the SCOM Dashboard Integration  and is not required to make the Visio integration work.


I go back to the SharePoint Central Administration Console and Click Manage service applications



I Click New, Visio Graphics Service.




I type in Visio Graphics.

Then I select Create a new application pool and type in VisioGraphicsAppPool and click OK

Note: It may take a little while to complete



Now I Select the Visio Graphics I just created.



I Select Trusted Data Providers



Click Add a new Trusted Data Provider




For Trusted Provider ID I type in:

Microsoft.Office.Visio.Server.OperationsManagerModule.OperationsManagerDataModule, Microsoft.Office.Visio.Server.OperationsManager, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35


For Trusted Data Provider I Type in: 6

For Trusted Data Provider Description I Type in: SCOM 2012 R2



I Click OK


Back on the SharePoint Central Administration Console and I Click Manage Services on serverimage


I click Start the Visio Graphics Service




Part 2 – Configuring SharePoint 2010 Integration Components

I open the SharePoint Central Administration Console.  I click Configure service accounts from the Security Section




From the dropdown I pick Service Application Pool – SharePoint Web Services System





I need to grant the SCOM2K12\max (or whatever your account listed here is) access to read SCOM.  I open the SCOM 2012 console double click on the Operations Manager Read-Only Operators and add my SharePoint service account to the Operations Manager Read-Only Operations user role.






Part 3 – Adding your Visio Dashboard to SharePoint 2013

I get my SCOM Dashboard Visio document from my previous post.

I open up the diagram document in Visio 2013




I click Configure to make sure my connection is correct.



I click File, Save As a Visio 2010 Web Drawing



Note: You might get a warning about some Compatibility issue.  Just click Continue.

I now go to my SharePoint page and click Shared Documents and upload the Visio file.

Now I select the document just uploaded




I click on my Visio Document and it comes up in a web console.



I click Allow Refresh


Part 4 – Configuring SharePoint 2013 to show your Visio Dashboard as a web part.

From my site I Add a page




Then I add a Web Part.  Under Business Data I select Visio Web Access



Then I select Click here to open the tool pane



I select the Document from my shared Documents where I stored it earlier.



Then I set the Automatic Refresh interval to 10 and uncheck Show Open in Visio




Then I Click Apply then OK


Now I check out my finished product.

    Hey Tim, do you happen to know if the Sharepoint-SCOM Dashboard and Visio extensions will work on an Office365 implementation of Sharepoint? -specifically thinking of a scenario involving an on-prem instance of SCOM connecting to an Office365 Sharepoint instance. Since Office365 Sharepoint servers are locked down in a multi-tenant scenario I am wondering if those Visio data providers and extensions are enabled out of the box?

      As far as I know they don’t work with O365

    I followed the steps, all went well but once I import the Visio file in webpart and after clicking refresh,

    image disappears and page becomes blank.

    Only I can see in the even vwr is

    ‘fMicrosoft.Office.Visio.Server,,,71e9bce111e9429c|Microsoft.Office.Visio.Server.WebControls15.Images.CloseButton.png’ does not exist or there was a problem loading it.
