VMware App adding customer dashboard

What is the best way to add a custom dashboard to the VMware App? Should I just edit $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/vmware/local/data/ui/nav ?

Correct, you'd add your dashboard to:

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_for_vmware/local/data/ui/views

and then you'd want to copy/edit:

copy:
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_for_vmware/default/data/ui/nav/default.xml

to:
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_for_vmware/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml

And then add the name of your new dashboard. Just as a note, any future updates for the app that add / change dashboards will ship with a new nav.xml and will require you to update your file by hand.
