You can configure one or more VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator integrations, so that you can use workflows as part of extensibility and cloud templates.

For the Automation Orchestrator integration, you must deploy a cloud extensibility proxy instance, that can be used for extensibility subscriptions and XaaS (Anything as a Service) operations used for cloud templates. This deployment includes a preconfigured Automation Orchestrator instance that is created after you deploy and power on your cloud extensibility proxy. You cannot integrate external Automation Orchestrator instances in VMware Aria Automation.
Important: Integration of new SaaS-enabled vRealize Orchestrator 7.6 instances is not supported. Existing vRealize Orchestrator 7.6 SaaS integrations will continue to operate, but you cannot update the configuration of these integrations. To migrate these vRealize Orchestrator 7.6 SaaS integrations to your new Automation Orchestrator integration, see Migrating a vRealize Orchestrator 7.6 SaaS instance to the cloud extensibility proxy.
The Automation Orchestrator integration in VMware Aria Automation uses a Cloud Services Platform (CSP) authentication that provides the same features as external Automation Orchestrator deployments that use a VMware Aria Automation license.
Note: Automation Orchestrator integration in VMware Aria Automation does not support changing the license provider for the integration.
For more information on license-based feature availability in Automation Orchestrator, see Automation Orchestrator Feature Enablement with Licenses in Installing and Configuring Automation Orchestrator.



  1. Select Infrastructure > Connections > Integrations.
  2. Click Add integration.
  3. Select Orchestrator.
  4. Enter a name for the Automation Orchestrator integration.
  5. (Optional) Enter a description for the Automation Orchestrator integration.
  6. Under VMware Aria Automation Orchestrator URL, enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your cloud extensibility proxy.
    For example,
  7. Under Cloud extensibility proxy, add your Automation Assembler cloud extensibility proxy.
    Multiple Automation Orchestrator integrations cannot share a cloud extensibility proxy.
  8. To validate the integration, click Validate.
  9. (Optional) If prompted to do so, review the certificate information, and click Accept.
  10. (Optional) Add capability tags. For more information on capability tags, see Using capability tags in Automation Assembler.
    Note: Capability tags can be used to manage multiple Automation Orchestrator integrations. See Managing multiple Automation Orchestrator integrations with project constraints.
  11. Click Add.
    The Automation Orchestrator integration is saved.
  12. To verify that the integration is configured and that the workflows are added, select Extensibility > Library > Workflows.


You have created an Automation Orchestrator integration. After the integration, the Automation Orchestrator service performs periodic subscription checks that confirm that your organization has access to the Automation Assembler service. If your subscription to the Automation Assembler service expires, you will be unable to access the Automation Orchestrator integration.

What to do next

To create and edit Automation Orchestrator content in your new integration, navigate to https://your_extensibility_va_FQDN:443.

You can perform additional configuration procedures to your Automation Orchestrator through the cloud extensibility proxy. For more information, go to Additional configuration options for the cloud extensibility proxy.

VMware Aria Automation now includes a Automation Orchestrator service which enables organization owners to assign Automation Orchestrator service roles to users who need access to Automation Orchestrator.
Note: The previous implementation where users had access to Automation Orchestrator through Automation Assembler service roles is no longer valid.

You can assign the new Automation Orchestrator service roles through the Identity and Access Management menu. For more information on editing service roles, go to How do I edit user roles in VMware Aria Automation. For more information on the Automation Orchestrator service roles, go to Organization and service user roles in VMware Aria Automation.
