One of the required parameters for the workflows in the vCAC folder is vCAC User. You must configure that parameter to be requested by a principal ID.

About this task

Workflows exposed through vRealize Automation can be customized using the vRealize Automation form editor interface. You can hide fields or rearrange them and add cosmetic improvements to fit into the organization service catalog. Add the blueprint for the specific workflow and customize as needed. You can convert any workflow field to a text box or provide values to display so that users can select from a drop-down list.
