  1. Log in to the VMware Cloud Director tenant portal.
  2. From the main menu (The graphical representation of the main menu icon.), select App Launchpad.
  3. On the Launched Applications tab, find the application vApp that you want to power on.
  4. From the Actions drop-down menu, select Power On.


After the power-on operation completes successfully, you can start using the application.
