Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in is similar to installing other vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins. Configuring the plug-in involves running various configuration workflows to connect to View components and to configure roles and permissions.
Horizon vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In Functional Prerequisites The Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in acts as middleware between Horizon 6, vCenter Orchestrator, and vCloud Automation Center. To be able to install and use the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in, your system must meet certain functional prerequisites.
Install or Upgrade the Horizon vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In Installing or upgrading the plug-in involves downloading the latest installer file and using the vCenter Orchestrator Configuration UI to upload the plug-in file and install the plug-in.
Post-Upgrade Configuration Tasks After upgrading to Horizon vCenter Orchestrator plug-in 1.1, you must perform some configuration tasks before running the newly added workflows.
Configure the Connection to a View Pod You run the Add View Pod workflow to provide the appropriate credentials for all workflow operations to be performed by the View Connection Server instance.
Assigning Delegated Administrators to Desktop and Application Pools The administrator runs a workflow to delegate responsibilities to delegated administrators. If your setup does not already contain a user group that has permission to register and update vCenter extensions, as well as permission to execute workflows in Orchestrator, you must first create such a group.
Best Practices for Managing Workflow Permissions You can use the Orchestrator client to limit which personas can see and interact with the workflows. Ideally, only the administrator interacts with workflows in vCenter Orchestrator by using the Orchestrator client. Delegated administrators and end users should interact with the workflows through the vSphere Web Client or through the service catalog in vCloud Automation Center.
Set a Policy for De-Provisioning Desktop Virtual Machines With the Add Pool Policy Configuration workflow, administrators can set safeguards for delegated administrators and end users regarding de-provisioning, or recycling, desktops. Administrators can choose whether to actually delete the virtual machine and can choose how to manage any associated persistent disks.
