You can license vRealize Automation individually or as part of vRealize Suite. If you have not added the vRealize Suite license to vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager as part of another solution, you can add the license to the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager locker before deploying vRealize Automation. Alternatively, during the deployment, you can manually add the license.

UI Procedure

  1. Log in to vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager at https://<vrealize_suite_lifecycle_manager_fqdn> as vcfadmin@local.
  2. On the My services page, click Locker.
  3. In the navigation pane, click Licenses.

  4. Click Add license manually, enter the vRealize Suite or vRealize Automation license alias and key, click Validate, and click Add

PowerShell Procedure

  1. Start Windows PowerShell.
