To save virtual data center resources, you can power off an application that you do not use. You can later power on the application.


Verify that you have the vApp User role or the equivalent set of rights assigned to your VMware Cloud Director. For more information, see Predefined Roles and Their Rights in the vCloud Director Documentation.


  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Director tenant portal.
  2. From the main menu (Main menu icon), select App Launchpad.
  3. On the My Applications tab, find the application vApp that you want to power off.
  4. From the Actions drop-down menu, select Power Off and confirm the operation.
