Tracking SCOM overrides

There is an easy way to view a list of all overrides, see recent changes, view details, and even compare the ‘Default Value’ to the ‘Override Value’.
The simplest way to accomplish this is by creating an “Overrides Summary View” in the “My Workspace” pane of the Operations Manager Console.




From here it is possible to customize the Criteria for which overrides should be included along with the type of data that should be displayed.  Typically, I choose to display the following Columns and adjust the order as shown below: (NOTE “unchecking the Management Pack Object Type” will change the view to a simple list instead of having the overrides sorted by type)




The reason for creating a view like this is to track any overrides that have been created.  To do this simply check the box “was added in a specified time period” and choose the time period that you are interested in as shown below




The final result should be something like this
