The administrator runs the Add 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.

Before you begin

  • 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.

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

About this task

Running the Add Delegated Administrator Configuration workflow is required for configuring the Horizon vRealize 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.

Procedure

  1. Log in to Orchestrator as an administrator.
  2. Click the Workflows view in Orchestrator.
  3. In the workflows hierarchical list, select Library > Horizon > Configuration > Delegated Admin Configuration and navigate to the Add Delegated Administrator Configuration workflow.
  4. Right-click the workflow and select Start workflow.
  5. Complete the form that appears.

    For Horizon View pods, use the following information to complete the form.
