Check for additions and updates to these release notes.

What's New

The VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager 1.3 introduces the following:

  • Graphical User Interface

    This release introduces a user interface (UI) to drive the process of configuring the environment and products you want to deploy. The UI is in addition to the command line interface (CLI) and the REST API. The UI enables reviewing a previously deployed environment, configuring a new environment (which may include VMware Cloud Director, vCloud Usage Meter, vRealize Operations Tenant App, and RabbitMQ), registering data center components, such as vCenter Server, NSX-T, and vRealize Operations Manager, and managing the execution of deployment tasks.

  • VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager stores the information about the deployed environment

    In a persistent store embedded with the appliance, VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager stores the information about the deployed environment, such as deployed products and versions. This enables verification and tracking of the deployed environments.

  • Support for current versions of VMware Cloud Provider Stack

    VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager 1.3 supports the most recent set of VMware products. For information about the VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager interoperability with other VMware products, see VMware Product Interoperability Matrices.

  • In-place upgrade of the VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager appliance

    VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager 1.3 supports in-place upgrade from version 1.2 to version 1.3.
