1, How could I set up vCOPS so it does not require users to log in by default?

2, How can I actually design a custom dashboard? I looked at the "custom UI" document from vmware, it tells what can be customized but doesn't tell the how.

If you access vCOPS from the vCenter Web Access, the authentication is passed-through. – ewwhite May 27 '13 at 16:27
yes, I know. but I want to users to just be able to go to stats.blahblah and have the vCOPS dashboard there. – Zoltan May 27 '13 at 18:59

This should be possible. You can take a look at the the online API documentation embedded in the web server. The Custom UI Administration Guide may help, too.

Go to: https://ip.of.vcops/HttpPostAdapter/OpenAPIServlet and enter your admin credentials. There's some basic API info available there...
