After you install and configure the Management Pack for vRealize Orchestrator, you can map custom and user defined workflows (actions) to alerts via recommendations. After you perform this mapping, you can execute the vRealize Orchestrator workflow to remediate issues when vRealize Operations Manager displays alerts. Out of the box workflows are automatically mapped to alerts.

Before you map alerts to workflows, review the out of the box workflows and corresponding recommendations and alerts. See Out of the Box Workflows in the Appendix.
