Although you can configure action items to appear in desktop and pool details in vRealize Automation without using the icons supplied by Orchestrator, as a best practice, export the icons from Orchestrator and then import them into vRealize Automation.

You can find a listing of the available actions by going to the Workflows view in Orchestrator and navigating to Library > Horizon > Workflows > vCAC > Actions. The actions are listed in the Desktop folder and the Pool folder.


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


  1. Log in to Orchestrator as an administrator, and select Design from the drop-down menu in the upper-left portion of the screen.
  2. Click the Resources view in Orchestrator.
  3. Navigate to Library > Horizon > Icon.
  4. Right-click an icon file and select Save to file, to save the icon file to your local system.
  5. Repeat this step for all the actions that you plan to make available on the Items tab in vRealize Automation.

What to do next

Import the custom resources you need for these actions. See Import View Desktops and Pools as Custom Resources.
