The administrator runs the Delegated Administrator Configuration workflow to set the scope of delegated administration. For example, a certain delegated administrator might be limited to performing operations on some pools, and a different delegated administrator might be limited to different pools.

About this task

Running the Delegated Administrator Configuration workflow is required for configuring the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in because, at a minimum, the primary administrator must be assigned to the pools. Using this workflow, the administrator has tight control over which pools can have distributed administration and which workflows can be leveraged.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you have administrator credentials for the Orchestrator server. The account must be a member of the vCenter Orchestrator Admin group configured to authenticate through vCenter Single Sign-On.

  • Verify that you have provided access rights for the delegated administrators group to view and execute workflows for the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in. See Provide Access Rights to the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In Workflows.

  • Verify that a connection has been made to the View pod by running the Add View Pod in Configuration workflow. See Configure the Connection to a View Pod.
