If a network function instance does not operate as expected, you can heal it by either rebooting or recreating the network function.


Instantiate the network function.

Note: This action is not supported on a Cloud Native Network Function (CNF).


  1. Log in to the VMware Telco Cloud Automation web interface.
  2. Select Inventory > Network Function.
  3. Click the Options (three dots) icon for the desired network function and select Heal.
  4. In the Heal page, enter a reason for healing the network function.
  5. Select whether to restart or recreate the network function and click Next.
  6. In the Inputs tab, enter the input variables required for starting and stopping the heal function. Provide any required inputs appropriately. Click Next.
  7. Review the configuration and click Finish.


The instantiated network function is restarted or recreated.
